Chevrolet Colorado recalls

 

For Models: Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon

Body, Interior & Misc., December 19, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The front hood is secured by two latches, the primary and secondary latch. The secondary latch prevents the hood from opening when the primary latch has been activated. These vehicles are being recalled because some may have been assembled without a secondary hood latch. With this latch missing, if the primary latch is not properly engaged the hood could open unexpectedly while driving. This could obstruct the view of the driver, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the hood on the affected vehicles to correct this concern. 

For Models: Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon

Body, Interior & Misc., November 17, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles may have been produced with a driver's side seat belt buckle electrical connector that does not fit snugly with the connector terminals, causing the electrical connection to be intermittent. This loose electrical connection may cause the driver not to receive a visual or audible warning that the driver's seat belt is not fastened. If the seat belt is not properly fastened in the event of a crash, there is an increased risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckle electrical connector terminals to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11322.

For Models: Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon

Drive Train, June 28, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles may have been assembled with an automatic transmission shift cable adjustment clip that may not retain the cable in the correct position. If the cable is not properly retained, the shift indicator may not show the correct transmission gear. The driver could move the shifter to "Park" and remove the ignition key, but the transmission gear may not be in "Park." The driver may not be able to restart the vehicle and the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury. Dealers will install a new automatic transmission adjustment clip to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on July 19, 2011. The General Motors recall number is 11181.

For Models: Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon

Body, Interior & Misc., May 5, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The windshield wiper motor crank arm nut may not be tightened to specification. If the wipers are operated with a buildup of snow or ice, or when the windshield is dry, the crank arm nut could loosen to the point where the wipers become inoperative. This could reduce driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will secure the crank arm nut to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin by May 11, 2011. The General Motors recall number is 11095.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The rear axle cross pin may break. The cross pin is an internal component of the rear differential, which is housed in the rear axle assembly. If the cross pin breaks, the rear axle may lock, which could result in loss of control and a crash. Dealers will install a new rear axle cross pin to correct this concern. This recall should begin no later than January 25, 2011. The General Motors number for this recall is 10426A.

General Motors is recalling certain 2004–2011 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Isuzu regular and extended cab models without a rear seat and equipped with a 60/40 front bench split seat for failing to comply with federal safety standards on child restraint anchorage systems.
