General Motors said that it is recalling all Hummer H3 units produced since the 2006 model year to fix a portion of the hood that can detach during driving. The voluntary recall affects 164,190 H3 and H3Ts in the United States and 198,404 worldwide.
Spokesman Nick Richards said that a device on the hood called a hood louver can come loose and possibly detach while driving – not to mention the device is actually a decorative homage to the old Hummer models. Richards said that there have only been two complaints for the problem in the U.S. and three in Japan.
GM is in the midst of shutting down Hummer after failing to sell the brand to Chinese company Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co., Ltd. (Tengzhong).
