GM Recalls 118,000 Canyon and Colorado Pickups

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.

It also has an automatic transmission, GM’s new in-house designed and -built eight-speed unit, which replaces last year’s six-cog piece carried over from the C6 Corvette.
