GM Initiates Pickup Truck Recall

According to an AP article in Findlaw, General Motors Corp. will recall approximately 400,000 pickup trucks because of defective brake lights.  The recall was initiated after an inquiry by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which contacted GM after receiving three complaints about the problem.  The vehicles affected by the recall are the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon from the 2004-2006 model years and the 2006 Isuzu i-280 and i-350.  The problems vary.  Some of the pickup trucks may permanently lose brake-lamp function or have brake lamps that are always on.  According to a GM spokesperson, no crashes have been caused by the problem.  The NHTSA was notified of the recall on Friday.  Dealers will replace the affected brake lamp assembly without charge.
