GM Initiates Massive HUMMER H3 and H3T Recall for Minor Hood Problem

HUMMER H3 H3T Hood Recall

General Motors and the NHSTA announced today a recall of every H3 and H3T between the model years 2006 and 2010 (that’s all of ‘em, folks!) because the small, black, decorate hood louver could become loose over time and become detached during operation.

If you’ve ever worked with the piece, you know it’s held on by a series of tabs that break relatively easily during the removal process. Apparently, the NHSTA has gotten two complaints from U.S. owners and GM had three complaints from Japan on the issue, causing GM to initiate a voluntary recall of 198,404 vehicles worldwide and 164,190 in the United States.

The recommended fix (to be completed by your dealer or authorized service store) is to rework the existing hood louver with permanent adhesive.

The H3 and H3T have had a great service/recall history – only minor issues like this and the jack recall a few years ago.

    How permanent is permanent adhesive? Is this going to make it a real pain should you ever wish to replace the plastic with bling?

  21. Neiyold Says:

    I finally looked at my letter, does anyone know if it has a negative effect on the warranty if the work is not done? There was no indication one way or the other in the letter that I could find.

  22. admin Says:

    No negative effects.

  23. Neiyold Says:

    Thanks, that is what I was seeing, or rather not seeing.

    Took my son and a few of his friends out last weekend to Green Ridge in MD for some muddin for his 12th Birthday! They loved it, wonderful weather, no one else on the trails, and mud and puddles everywhere. Ah, H3’s forever!
