2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Recalled for Loose Seats and Chafing Wires
June 15, 2015
We were just at Puente Hills Chevrolet for our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado's first service a month ago. Now General Motors is issuing a recall affecting more than 48,000 new Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups. Some seats were not properly secured during assembly and had to be inspected at a dealer to ensure correct fitment.
Our truck was one of the affected, so we made an appointment to have it inspected. The dealer also informed us of a service bulletin about wires located in the body wire harness that could chafe against the driver's foot when applying the parking brake. We were told it would take two hours to complete the recall and bulletin work.
I arrived at 1 pm on a Friday and met with the advisor, who then told me I should expect to wait three hours for the work to finish. If the seats were installed incorrectly and the seat hooks missing, the dealer would need to order replacement parts. The wire harness fix required no additional hardware. Facing three hours in the dealer lounge, I took the courtesy shuttle back home.
The car was ready two hours later. No wires were in immediate danger of being damaged, but some were re-routed anyway to prevent future mishaps. Our seats were installed incorrectly at the factory but they had the hooks necessary for the repair. They were removed and reattached.
If you think your Colorado or Canyon may be part of the recall, contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1010 or GMC customer service at 1-800-988-7267.
