The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that all units of the 2010 through 2012 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon have been recalled by General Motors.
The automaker has reported that the vehicles manufactured between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012 were equipped with hoods that may have been installed without the secondary hood latch, which could cause the hood to open in an unexpected manner, affecting the driver’s visibility and posing a crash risk to occupants.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported in the official statement that all affected vehicles will be fully repaired for free. According to the federal agency, because this defect is a failure of compliance with federal standards, this recall was issued promptly and in order to avoid accidents.
