Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Oskar writes: I have an aging Silverado with astronomical miles on it. I’m looking to buy a new Colorado; and then came across this report and enclosed video. Could you please give me advice on my planned purchase? I can’t get a straight answer from my dealer.
My reply: There is, apparently, an issue with the Colorado (and its GMC-badged twin, the Canyon). Here is the relevant info from NHTSA:
