General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2012 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC canyon vehicles, manufactured from September 9, 2011, through October 19, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, "occupant crash protection." These vehicles may have been produced with driver safety belt buckle electrical connector terminals that do not fit snugly with the connector pins, causing the connection to be intermittent.
GM will notify owners and dealers will replace the seat belt buckle electrical connector terminals free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before December 7, 2011. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463.
