2012 Chevrolet Colorado LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:HOOD:LATCH NHTSA Campaign #12V594000
Summary: General Motors is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon vehicles manufactured from November 9, 2009, through August 28, 2012, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, "Hood Latch System." The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch.
Consequence: If the primary hood latch is not engaged, the hood could open unexpectedly. During vehicle operation, this could obstruct the view of the driver and increase the risk of a crash.
Actions: General Motors will notify owners and instruct them to inspect their vehicle for the presence of a secondary hood latch. Dealers will replace the hood on any affected vehicles, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or GMC at 1-866-996-9463.

2012 Chevrolet Colorado SEAT BELTS:FRONT NHTSA Campaign #11V552000
Summary: General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2012 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC canyon vehicles, manufactured from September 9, 2011, through October 19, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, "occupant crash protection." These vehicles may have been produced with driver safety belt buckle electrical connector terminals that do not fit snugly with the connector pins, causing the connection to be intermittent.
Consequence: The loose connections may cause the driver to not receive a visual or audible warning that the driver seat belt is not fastened, thereby increasing the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash.
Actions: GM will notify owners and dealers will replace the seat belt buckle electrical connector terminals free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before December 7, 2011. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #11V552000 »
