Report Receipt Date: MAY 12, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V278000
Component(s): SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
Potential Number of Units Affected: 14,838

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
Model: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, 2015 GMC Canyon

SUMMARY:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, and GMC Canyon trucks manufactured January 6, 2014, to December 24, 2014. The affected vehicles may experience the front brake calipers leaking brake fluid. This is due to air pockets, an imperfection in the metal caliper body.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the vehicle experiences a brake fluid leak it can increase the stopping distance, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the front-brake calipers if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 10, 2015. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), or 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14888.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

"dealers will inspect and replace the front-brake calipers if necessary"

I don't like the sound of that if necessary, especially when dealers get paid crap flat rate on this stuff. They should be replaced regardless if they know they are a possible problem, it's a safety item for everyone on the road not just the occupants.

According to the experiences from those at the other site, it's based on build time. Seems like there was a bad batch or something like that since it's not all of them.

Some trucks have been held in captivity once the truck hits the service dept. due to no part and dealership not releasing the vehicle back to the owner.

Some have passed inspection.

Others have been in and out same day with replacement calipers.
