Recall Issued to Fix Hood Latch Problem in 145,000 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon Trucks

Zach GaleDec 20, 2012
GM is recalling 2010-2012 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups to address an issue with the hood latch that could affect more than 145,000 vehicles globally.
The Problem: 2010-2012 Chevrolet Colorados and 2010-2012 GMC Canyons made from November 9, 2009 through August 28, 2012 may have a hood that's missing the secondary hood latch. If the primary hood latch is not engaged and there is no secondary latch, the hood could open unexpectedly, potentially leading to a crash if the driver's visibility is reduced.
The Fix: GM will instruct owners to inspect their trucks to see if they have a secondary hood latch. Those not comfortable with the inspection can contact a dealer to check. If the latch is missing, dealers will replace the hood -- the recall is scheduled to begin on January 17, 2013. Chevrolet owners can call 1-800-630-2438 and GMC owners 1-866-996-9463 for more information.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 118,800 trucks in the U.S., 15,264 in Canada, 7492 in Mexico, and about 4000 in other countries.
The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon will soon be replaced by new trucks made in Missouri and ready for the 2014 or 2015 model year.
