General Motors Co is recalling more than 4,500 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks because nuts in the windshield wipers may not have been sufficiently tightened.

If a nut in the wiper's motor crank arm were too loose, the wiper might not work if there were a build-up of snow or ice. The nut could also loosen if the wiper were operated on a dry windshield.

At a certain point, the nut could be loose enough for the wipers to stop working.

GM said the trucks, which are for the model year 2011, were built from late September to early November of last year.
