2015 Chevrolet Colorado GearOn special edition (1)

H General Motors ανακαλεί 9.200 Chevrolet Colorado και GMC Canyon, με ημερομηνίες κατασκευής από 25 Αυγούστου μέχρι 24 Σεπτεμβρίου του 2015 για το πρώτο και από 28 Αυγούστου μέχρι 24 Σεπτεμβρίου του 2015 για το δεύτερο.

Ο λόγος είναι ότι ένα κάλυμμα στη κονσόλα θα μπορούσε να ανοίξει σε περίπτωση σύγκρουσης, και τα αντικείμενα στο εσωτερικό του χώρου αποθήκευσης μπορεί να χτυπήσουν τους επιβάτες κατά τη διάρκεια του ατυχήματος. Δεν έχει αναφερθεί κάποιος τραυματισμός ή θάνατος και οι ιδιοκτήτες θα πρέπει να πάνε στις τοπικές αντιπροσωπείες ώστε να αλλαχτούν τα μέρη της κονσόλας με νέα, βελτιωμένα.

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016 Chevrolet Colorado trucks manufactured August 25, 2015 to September 24, 2015, and GMC Canyon trucks manufactured August 28, 2015 to September 24, 2015. The affected vehicles have a console compartment lid latch assembly that may fail to keep the compartment door closed in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 201, “Occupant Protection in Interior Impact.”

If the console compartment door does not remain closed in a crash, the contents stored in the console may strike the vehicle occupants, increasing their risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the console compartment door latch assembly, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM’s number for this recall is 16370.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
