Summary:
GM is recalling certain Model Year 2004 – 2011, Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon Model Year 2006, Isuzu I-280/I-350, and Model Year 2007 – 2008 I-290/I-370, Regular cab vehicles and extended cab vehicles without a rear seat and equipped with a front 60/40 split bench seat. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, ‘Child Restrain Anchorage Systems.’ The top tether anchor for the front center seat is not accessible and the owner manual does not include instructions regarding how to use the top tether.

Consequence:
Both NTSA and GM discourage placement of a child in a front seat. Nevertheless, there are individual circumstances that may require placement of a child in a restrain in the front center seating position of this vehicle that does not offer a rear seat. Lack of access to the top tether anchor and a lack of instructions as to how to use it, may result in improper installation of a child restrain. Improper installation of a child restraint can result in a reduction in the restraint’s performance in the event of a crash and an increased risk of injury or death to the child seated in the restraint.

 Remedy:
Dealers will cut a hole into the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top tether anchor for the front center seat position and will provide supplemental information as to use in the owner’s manual. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, ISUZU at 1-800-255-6727 OR visit GM’s website at www.gmownercenter.com.

 

Notes:
GM Safety Recall No. 10367.  Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safecar.gov.
