2022 Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon Recalled For Improper Seat Frame Welding4
Certain examples of the 2022 Chevy Colorado and 2022 GMC Canyon mid-size pickups have been recalled due to an issue related to the front seat frames.
The problem: affected vehicles may have been delivered with a front passenger seat hook attachment that was not properly welded, allowing it to separate from the inboard track of the seat frame. This problem only affects 2022 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon models equipped with a manual seat slider mechanism.
The hazards: An improperly welded seat frame may result in the occupant not being properly restrained, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The fix: GM will instruct dealer technicians to inspect the front passenger seat and replace the metal cushion frame with a new one, if necessary. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.

… the industry in general is so bad today, everything we buy comes with problems, nothing is 100% high quality… even the things people ask a lot of money is not full happiness… why the workers work so bad since a while ?
The issue is there are no workers… Robots work great until they don’t.
According to NHTSA docs, “The seat frame supplier reviewed their manufacturing records and determined that the laser welder had inadvertently been set too low during two production shifts on March 22, 2022.”
Ever seen the problems European cars have? That’s cause they’re the most heavily automated.
The “inadvertently been set too low” makes it sound like a worker messed up.
The seats are made by Lear Corp.
