Sometimes being the first on your block with a brand new car means that you suffer through some early issues. That was the case with the Jeep Cherokee and it’s the case again with the new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, sales of which have been halted until an airbag issue gets sorted.
At this point, dealers have sold only a few dozen of the new 2015 trucks. Those trucks will be part of a recall while the airbag issue gets straightened out.
At the same time, General Motors issued two new recalls involving half a million vehicle in North America, including the Cadillac SRX, and the defunct Saab 9-4x to fix loose nuts that could cause worn threads in the toe adjuster link. Those issues have caused three crashes and resulted in two injuries.
Those recalls affect 524,384 vehicles in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. General Motors is up to 71 recalls this year, affecting a about 30 million vehicles worldwide.
