Vehicles Affected: Approximately 570 model-year 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 pickups, all previously recalled in March

The Problem: The hood-latch striker wires on replacement hoods installed previously may not have been heat-treated properly, possibly causing them to fracture and allowing the hood to open unexpectedly while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the hood assembly for free. For hoods sold over the counter, dealers will contact customers with instructions for hood replacement.

What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet and GMC manufacturer GM will begin notifying owners July 20. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, GMC at 800-462-8782, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
