General Motors Recall: Addressing Emergency Braking Concerns

General Motors issues a recall for the Chevrolet Colorado and its GMC counterpart due to reports of unexpected activation of the emergency braking system, affecting a total of 55,755 units.

The issue stems from faulty software in the front camera module, leading to erroneous obstacle detection and subsequent engagement of the emergency braking system.

The affected vehicles, produced for the 2023 model year at the Wentzville Assembly plant in Mississippi, encompass 46,708 units of the Colorado and 9,047 units of the Canyon. The supplier of the faulty software, Veoneer, is headquartered in Stockholm, with General Motors commencing investigations following reports of similar incidents in the Chinese market.

Identifying 234 complaints from owners regarding phantom braking incidents, General Motors has initiated a recalibration of the front camera module as the remedy. Dealerships have been directed to update the software, with affected 2024 model-year vehicles receiving the update before shipment.

Owners can expect notification via mail around April 8, 2024, detailing the recall procedure. Alternatively, they can verify inclusion in the recall by entering their vehicle’s VIN on relevant websites.

Despite the recall, General Motors continues to introduce updates to its lineup, such as discontinuing the Turbo Plus engine option for the 2024 Colorado and introducing off-road variants like the ZR2 Bison and AT4X AEV, signaling ongoing development efforts.
