Recall Details

The driver's front seat frame attachment hooks may not be secured to the vehicle body as required. Dealers will inspect the seats and correct their installation as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The driver's front seat frame may not be securely fastened to the vehicle body. In a crash, the seat may detach from the body, increasing risk of injury.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon trucks manufactured January 6, 2014, to April 1, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the hooks that secure the driver's and/or front passenger's seat frame may not have been properly attached to the vehicle body during assembly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 207, "Seating Systems."

Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seats, correcting their installation as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2015. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 15150.
