Potential GM Lemon Law Claims. GM Recalls 119,000 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado Trucks
GM announced the recall of almost 120,000 trucks due to a welding error. This error affects model year 2010 through 2012 GMC Canyon trucks and Chevrolet Colorado Trucks. This welding error could cause the secondary hood to latch to disengage, which could cause the hood to open while driving. It should be noted that these GM trucks have two latches, so the failure of the one latch would not automatically cause the hood to open while driving.
This welding defect in these GM trucks was discovered by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NHTSA has not reported any injuries or deaths due to this GM defect.
GM has stated that it will notify owners to check their GMC Canyon trucks and Chevrolet Colorado trucks for these secondary hood latches. Should consumers have these secondary hood latches in their trucks, authorized GM dealerships will replace these hood latches at no charge to the consumer.
If you own or lease any of these GM trucks, be aware that these models that are potential lemons. If you have experienced any problems with the hood of your car, the engine, or the body, you should contact the lemon law attorneys at Consumer Law Experts for a free case evaluation today.
