GM recalling 400,000 trucks

Recommended Posts

DETROIT — General Motors Corp. (GM) is recalling about 400,000 pickup trucks due to defective brake lights.

The affected vehicles are the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon from the 2004-2006 model years and the 2006 Isuzu i-280 and i-350.

GM said some vehicles may permanently lose brake-lamp function or have brake lamps that are always on. On vehicles with cruise control, that function also becomes inoperative.

GM spokesman Alan Adler said the company was not aware of any crashes resulting from the problem.

Dealers will replace the brake lamp switch assembly in the affected vehicles at no charge.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration contacted GM to inquire about the issue after receiving three complaints, and the company issued the recall in response, Adler said.

GM notified NHTSA of the recall in a letter dated Friday.

Further proof that the Colorado/Canyon are junk and need a redesign sooner rather than later.  <_<

uh.... what?

You may not like the design, but they are quite capable smaller trucks.

Only the Ranger and the Chevy/GMC twins are small enough to be in the small catagory anymore. Notice the Durango is almost the size of a 1993 F-150 these days? Even the Tacoma is getting pretty big.

If you only need a small truck, would you rather a Colorado or a Ranger.....?
