General Motors is recalling nearly 53,000 Colorado and Canyon mid-sized trucks over issues with loose seats that could result in injuries during a crash.

GM says the seat frame attachment hooks in the 2015 model year trucks may not have been properly attached to the truck’s body during assembly, potentially allowing the front seat to break free during a crash.

Dealerships will inspect the trucks and replace any necessary parts if needed, all free of charge to the customer. GM will be contacting those customers in the near future.

Of the 52,930 trucks affected by the recall, 48,309 of them are in the U.S. with 4,620 in Canada. Roughly 13,000 of those are still on dealership lots and will be inspected and repaired before being sold.

Thankfully, there are no reports of crashes, injuries, or fatalities as a result of the issue.
