GM recall involves rear brake problem

By Jennifer Keiper, WLS-AM 890 News

(CHICAGO) General Motors is recalling over 240,000  vehicles, in the U.s. and Canada, to fix a rear brake problem.

The recall covers GMC Terrain, Buick Lacrosse and Regal, Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Cruze, Equinox, Volt, Impala and Bolt vehicles from 2018 and 2019. Also covered is the 2018 Chevy Malibu.

GM says the rear brake caliper pistons can contain trapped hydrogen gas that could make the brakes feel soft and increase the risk of a crash. GM says it’s not aware of any crashes.

GM will notify owners and dealers will bleed the brakes to remove gas.
