Trucks may be missing their secondary hood latch

The number of major automotive recalls over the last several months has grown significantly. General Motors has announced a recall that covers 118,000 of its small pickup trucks in the Colorado and Canyon lines. The pickups covered in the recall are from the 2010 through 2012 model years.

The trucks were manufactured between November 9, 2009 in August 28, 2012. The reason for the recall was that the vehicles fail to comply with requirements for federal statute having to do with the hood latch system. In a nutshell, the hood may be missing its secondary latch.

The missing latch means that if the primary latch on the hood that fails it could blow up leading to an accident. General Motors says it plans notifying owners and instruct them to inspect their vehicles for the secondary hood latch. Any vehicles missing the latch will be repaired free of charge.

While there are many fine trucks suited to such tasks, Chevrolet’s Silverado won our most recent pickup truck comparison test, making it our top choice in the segment. But we’re slightly vain, so naturally we settled upon that rig’s better-dressed sibling, the GMC Sierr ...

GM Issues Recalls For Six New Vehicle Recalls
What It Is: The next-generation Chevrolet Malibu mid-size sedan buried under a pile of black tarps. The pictures nevertheless have a tale to tell, starting with the clear indication that the car will grow. More specifically, the car appears to have stretched in the rear door area, which indicates that Chevy is bent on rectifying its rear-seat legroom deficit. It’s been a major sore spot for buyers since the Malibu was placed on the shorter version of GM’s Epsilon platform b ...
