GM Issues Stop-Delivery Order For Colorado And Canyon


For a little issue involving the driver airbag.

To GM’s credit, at least it didn’t take a decade for it to do something about this. All sarcasm aside, the American automaker has just issued a stop-delivery order for its new midsize pickup trucks, the Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon. The reason nobody can buy either one at the moment is due to the driver airbag connections. They were apparently wired incorrectly during the manufacturing process.

More specifically, the situation affects the trucks’ two-stage airbag system by reversing the deployment sequence and disrupting the deployment timing of the driver airbag stages. The bottom line is the driver airbag doesn’t work as it should. Fortunately, GM caught the problem while the affected trucks were still on the production line or in transit to dealerships. Just a small number have been sold to customers, who are now being notified directly by GM either through a FedEx letter or phone. They need to get their trucks to a dealer ASAP and will be given a free loaner vehicle.
