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.

GM supports bill banning Tesla direct sales in Michigan

Oct 21 2014 2:35pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

According to this report by Jalopnik, GM wasn’t about to let people buy Teslas in Michigan without a fight. Tesla is unlike most automakers in that you can buy a Tesla directly from the manufacturer, without the need for a dealer. You simply pick the one you like, pay the price without any haggling, and your car is delivered to your door. You can even buy a Tesla over the phone. Naturally, this seems like a more desirable option than haggling with a dealer for hours ...
