Recall 15V807000

Console Compartment Door Does Not Stay Latched

Recall Details

The latch for the console compartment lid may not operate properly and may allow the console compartment open. Dealers will replace the console compartment latch assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The console compartment door may not stay latched properly. If this becomes unlatched in an accident, items stored in the compartment may strike passengers and possibly cause injury.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016 Chevrolet Colorado trucks manufactured August 25, 2015 to September 24, 2015, and GMC Canyon trucks manufactured August 28, 2015 to September 24, 2015. The affected vehicles have a console compartment lid latch assembly that may fail to keep the compartment door closed in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 201, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact."
Consequence
If the console compartment door does not remain closed in a crash, the contents stored in the console may strike the vehicle occupants, increasing their risk of injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the console compartment door latch assembly, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 16370.
Notify
