On May 5, 2010, General Motors Co. announced a recall of more than 160,000 Hummer H3 sport-utility vehicles, citing a defect with clips that hold the hood louver down in certain H3 vehicles from 2006-2010. The defect can cause a piece of the hood to detach while the vehicle is moving.
“If the vehicle is being driven when this occurs, it could strike a following vehicle and cause injury and/or property damage,” according to the recall report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
To fix the potential problem, dealers will need to use adhesive to secure the hood louver to the hood. Owners may contact Hummer at 800-732-5493 for more information.
