GM To Recall 118,800 Vehicles

WASHINGTON,  (UPI) –  General Motors is poised to recall 118,800 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado vehicles due to hoods that could spring open unexpectedly, U.S. regulators said.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the automaker would initiate a recall Jan. 17 to fix hood latch systems on 2010-12 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyons made between Nov. 9, 2009, and Aug. 28, 2012.

The hoods on the vehicles may be missing the secondary hood latch, the U.S. regulator said.

Vehicles without the secondary hood latch are at risk of having the hood fly open and block the driver’s view of the road, precipitating an accident.

GM dealers will replace the hood on any affected vehicles free of charge.

Chevrolet Colorado owners can call 800-630-2438 for more information. GMC Canyon owners were instructed to call 866-996-9463 for information.
