GM re­call­ing 145,000 pick­ups for hood glitch

Mer­chants slash­ing prices as dis­ap­point­ing hol­i­day shop­ping sea­son draws to close.

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

DETROIT — Gen­eral Mo­tors is re­call­ing more than 145,000 pickup trucks be­cause the hoods can fly open un­ex­pect­edly and block the driver’s vi­sion.

The re­call af­fects Chevro­let Colorado and GMC Canyon mid­size trucks from the 2010 through 2012 model years. Most of the trucks were sold in North Amer­ica.

The U.S. Na­tional High­way Traf­fic Safety Ad­min­is­tra­tion says some of the trucks may not have a sec­ondary hood latch. If the main latch isn’t fas­tened, the hoods can open while the trucks are in mo­tion. GM said it doesn’t know of any crashes or in­juries caused by the prob­lem. If there’s no sec­ondary latch, GM will re­place the hoods free of charge.
