Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon Recalled to Fix Faulty LATCH Anchor
The latest recall woe to hit the General Motors desk is related to the child seat restraint system incorporated into every new vehicle on the road. The action impacts more than 190,000 of GM's midsize trucks.
The Problem: Federal law mandates passenger seating positions to have accessible LATCH points to securely fasten a child seat. The 2004-2011 Colorado, Canyon, and certain 2007-2008 Isuzu i-Series pickup trucks with bench front seats don't have an accessible top LATCH tether point on the bench's center seat.
The Fix: Dealers will make the center seat's top LATCH anchor point accessible, although GM recommends all child seats to be installed in the right passenger seat if necessary.
Number of vehicles potentially affected: 192,676
