A couple of weeks back, General Motors issued a stop-sale for its 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and 2015 GMC Canyon pickups over an airbag defect. Dealers were told to halt all deliveries until further notice and they’ve now been given the green light to resume sales of the midsize trucks, GMC confirmed.
The stop-sale was originally put in place to fix a flaw with the driver’s side airbag which was caused by wires being hooked up incorrectly during the manufacturing process. GM told dealers to stop selling all Canyons and Colorados until they could devise a software patch which would reprogram the airbag’s sensing and diagnostics module.
Dealers are now free to sell both the new midsize pickups to customers. Few vehicles were recalled over the flaw, as GM only sold 36 2015 Chevrolet Colorados and 11 2015 GMC Canyons in the minimal amount of days it was on sale in September before the stop-sale was issued.
