Over 192,000 Chevrolet, GMC, Isuzu Pickups Recalled For Child Seat Anchor Issue

Follow Nelson

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today announced a recall of over 192,000 General Motors and Isuzu midsize pickups because the top child seat anchors aren't accessible and there are no instructions in the owner's manual on how to do so. Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon models from 2004-2011 are affected, along with 2006 model I-280 and I-350 pickups and 2007-2008 I-290 and I-370 pickups.

The inclusion of the Isuzus in the otherwise GM-only recall is because the Isuzu pickups were built by GM at its Shreveport, Louisiana plant.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 225 is the regulation violated by the non-compliant child seat anchor system. The problem affects pickups with regular or extended cabs equipped with 60/40 split bench front seat and no rear seats.

GM's solution is to cut a hole into the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top child seat anchor. GM hasn't yet notified affected owners, but if you own one of the vehicles listed above, you can contact GM via its Owner Center website.

  1. Typical GM Blunder !! One recall after another. Nothing ever changes with this Co.
    Engineering is not a good word here.

    Bad stuff?

  2. @vegasjerry- Rather foolish comment. No child front seat child seat installation instructions when neither GM nor NHTSA recommend even using them in the front seat!!! Contrast that with unintended acceleration at Toyota & Honda. Toyota has far more recalls relative to their sales than GM.

  3. Dr. Olds doesn't know of what he speaks. GM's history of building crappy cars goes back to the days of Roger Smith's rein. X body, Corvair, Chevette. You name it and it fell apart quickly. GM's history of recalls goes back for years. Still happening today.
    I am a retired auto repair shop owner. Fixing the GM cars of the 70's and 80's made me lots of money. Stupid things like door hinges wearing out, No other makers had this problem. GM has more recalls than any 2 other car co's. combined.
