GM recalls pickup trucks to fix problem with hoods
DETROIT - General Motors is recalling nearly 119,000 pickup trucks in the U.S. 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.
The 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 hood could open.
GM found the problem after getting two complaints.
Owners will have the option of checking the hoods for the secondary latch or taking it to a dealer. If there's no secondary latch, GM will replace the hoods free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin next month.
