DETROIT, Mi. (www.incnow.tv) --- Some 145,000 GM pick-up trucks are being recalled because the hood might suddenly fly open and block the driver's view.

The recall involves 2010 through 2012 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado midsize truck models.

Owners will have the option of checking the hoods for the secondary latch or taking it to a dealer. If there's no secondary latch, GM will replace the hoods free of charge.

GM says the recall includes 118,800 trucks in the U.S., 15,264 in Canada, 7,492 in Mexico and just over 4,000 in other countries. Owners are expected to get recall notices in the mail starting next month.
