DETROIT ( TheStreet) -- General Motors said Wednesday it is recalling all Hummer H3s produced since the 2006 model year because part of the hood can come loose. The voluntary recall affects 164,190 Hummers in the U.S. and 198,404 worldwide, the company said. The H3 is the small version of the Hummer.
Hummer spokesman Nick Richards told the Associated Press that a device on the hood called a hood louver can come loose and possibly detach while the Hummer is being driven. He said the repair involves using an adhesive to glue the device to the hood. General Motors is shutting down Hummer after an attempt to sell the division to a Chinese company fell through early this year. -- Written by Ted Reed in Charlotte, N.C.
