Although deliveries to dealers commenced just a month ago, General Motors' new mid-size pickup truck family was subjected to a stop-delivery order at the beginning of October over a wiring error. If that wasn't enough of a mess-up, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon are now involved in a minor recall campaign related to the stop-sale order.
That stop-sale order from two weeks ago informed U.S. dealers to halt deliveries because driver airbag connections have been wired incorrectly during the manufacturing process. Just as you might've guessed by now, that translates to faulty airbag deployment.

Fast forward a fortnight or so and here we are today, in the midst of a proper recall campaign. According to the Detroit-based golden bowtie manufacturer, the operation totals 2,432 pickup trucks, of which only 138 examples were delivered to customers.

Affected owners of those 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks, as well as those examples still at the Wentzville Assembly plant or in dealer inventory, will visit service departments for a fix that takes 30 minutes at maximum. Basically, all the technician needs to do is to find the improperly paired driver airbag connectors and undo the electrical goof.

With great fortune for both consumers and General Motors' legal division, there were no reports of crashes or injuries related to the aforementioned assembly error. At the time of writing, General Motors declared that roughly 19 percent of the recall population has been repaired.
