Recalls: General Motors stops delivery of 2015 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon

General Motors is already up its own creek with recalling the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, forcing a stop-sale of their new midsize pickup over improperly wired driver’s side airbags.

The total number of affected vehicles is still under analysis while the problem was found to affect the two-stage deployment function which could be reversed from being hooked up wrong.

Majority of the affected trucks are on the assembly line, so only a small number have landed in the hands of consumers. GM is contacting the customers of affected cars and will fix the car free of charge, while providing a free loaner.

No crashes or injuries have been reported.

Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon stop delivery statement

General Motors has told dealers to halt deliveries of 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks. These vehicles contain driver airbag connections that were wired incorrectly during the manufacturing process. This condition affects the vehicles’ two-stage airbag system by reversing the deployment sequence and disrupting the deployment timing of the driver airbag stages. This condition will cause the driver airbags to not function as designed.

The majority of affected vehicles are being held at the assembly plant or are in transit or unsold at dealerships. GM is working to validate the correction for the condition. Once that service procedure is released to dealers, customer deliveries can resume. A small number of vehicles have been sold.

Customers are being sent a FedEx letter and being contacted by phone to bring their vehicles to dealers as soon as possible. The repair will be done at no change and free loaner vehicles will be available. A safety recall will be conducted but population and other details are not known at this time. GM is aware of no crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition.
