NEW YORK (AP) - General Motors is recalling all Hummer H3s
produced since the 2006 model year to fix a portion of the hood
that can detach during driving.
The voluntary recall affects 164,190 Hummer H3s and H3Ts in the
U.S. and 198,404 worldwide.
Hummer spokesman Nick Richards says a device on the hood called
a hood louver (LOO-ver) can come loose and possibly detach while
driving. The device helped to cool the engine on older Hummer
models but is decorative on the H3.
Richards says the repair involves applying an adhesive to
refasten the louver to the hood. He says there have been two
complaints of the problem in the U.S. and three in Japan.
GM is in the process of shutting down Hummer after an attempt to
sell the brand to a Chinese buyer fell through earlier this year.
