GM will recall 3.5 million pickups and SUVs to fix brake issue

GM recalls more than 3.4M pickups, SUVs to fix brake issues

Facing pressure from the federal government, General Motors is recalling more than 3.4 million pickup trucks and SUVs nationwide that may have potential brake problems.

As the pumps in the power-assist brakes put out less vacuum power than is needed, "customers may experience increased brake pedal effort, hard brake pedal, and/or potentially increased stopping distance". It's not clear if there are more crashes or injuries related to the recall. GM recalled an additional 310,000 vehicles in Canada earlier this year for the same problem.

The following are the vehicles in the GM recall 2019.

If you're an owner of one of those cars, take it to the dealer to get the brake control module recalibrated at no cost.


The recall involves some of GM's best-selling products: the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, and the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Suburban, and Cadillac Escalade SUVs.

NHTSA, the government's road safety agency, began investigating the problem in November of past year after getting 111 complaints from owners of poor brake performance. Owners were to be notified starting September 6.

The recall comes 10 months after NHTSA opened its investigation and over two months after the recall was announced in Canada. Reuters reports that GM is also recalling 270,000 other vehicles in the us, including 177,000 2018 Chevrolet Malibu cars with 1.5L turbo engines because an engine error can disable the fuel injectors and 91,000 2019 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vehicles due to a seatbelt-unfastened warning-light issue. Engines may not start, or in rare cases, could stall without warning.
