General Motors is recalling more than 1,900 model year 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500, and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 pickups. The hood-latch striker wires may not have been heat-treated properly, possibly causing them to fracture.
If a striker wire fractures, the hood may open unexpectedly while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the hood assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 26, 2020. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-888-988-7267. GM’s number for this recall is N192284960.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
While you may not own one of these trucks, if you know someone who does be sure to tell them.
