A seat attachment may have been welded improperly and may not restrain a seat occupant

General Motors is recalling 1,534 model year 2022 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado vehicles that were equipped with a manual passenger seat. 

The company says the front passenger seats in affected vehicles may have a hook attachment that was not properly welded during manufacturing. This could allow the hook to separate from the inboard track of the seat frame. 

This issue could lead to a passenger not being properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do

Dealers are being advised to inspect the front passenger seat in recalled vehicles and replace the cushion frame, if necessary, for free. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on July 11, 2022. 

Consumers may contact GMC customer service by phone at 1-800-462-8782 or Chevrolet customer service by phone at 1-800-222-1020 for more information. 

GM's number for this recall is N222368320.
