GM Recalls Hummers, Corvettes


Certain General Motors Hummer H3s and Chevy Corvettes are being recalled, making it a tough recall year so far for more than just Toyota (Stock Quote: TM).

Upwards of 162,000 Hummer H3s are being recalled because the SUVs’ hoods can detach and potentially strike other vehicles on the road, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall comes just as parent company General Motors (Stock Quote: GM) has decided to discontinue the dying brand.

The company plans to correct the problem found in the 2006 through 2010 model years using an adhesive, the NHTSA says.

Separately, 2005 and 2006 model year Corvettes are being recalled because steering column problems could lead to unexpected automatic braking or the vehicle could move to the right or left without warning, the NHTSA says. About 40,028 Corvettes will require repairs as a result.

GM plans to contact owners of recalled vehicles individually and repairs will be made at dealerships free of charge, the NHTSA says.
