General Motors is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Chevrolet
Colorado and GMC Canyon vehicles manufactured from November 9, 2009,
through August 28, 2012, for failing to comply with the requirements
of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, "Hood Latch
System." The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch.
If the primary hood latch is not engaged, the hood could open
unexpectedly. During vehicle operation, this could obstruct the view
of the driver and increase the risk of a crash.
General Motors will notify owners and instruct them to inspect their
vehicle for the presence of a secondary hood latch. Dealers will
replace the hood on any affected vehicles, free of charge. The recall
is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Owners may contact Chevrolet
at 1-800-630-2438 or GMC at 1-866-996-9463.
