Program Title:

Incorrect Trailer Hitch

Program Description:

Certain 2015-2016 model year Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon vehicles, equipped with heavy-duty trailering package (RPO Z82), which includes a trailer hitch rated at 7,000 lb, may have been built with a 3,500 lb trailer hitch. If a 3,500 lb trailer hitch is used to tow more than 3,500 lb, cracks could develop at the hitch. Over time these cracks could potentially spread and fatigue the hitch. If the vehicle is being operated with a trailered load, a fatigued trailer hitch could allow the trailer to separate from the tow vehicle.

Safety Risk Description:

Over time these cracks could potentially spread and fatigue the hitch. If the vehicle is being operated with a trailered load, a fatigued trailer hitch could allow the trailer to separate from the tow vehicle.

Repair Description:

Inspect for the presence of a heavy-duty trailer hitch and, if necessary, install a new hitch.
