GM Recalls More Than 3.4 Million Pickups, SUVs To Fix Brake Issues

"This remedy will improve brake performance in any situation where brake vacuum drops", he said.

GM is recalling almost 3.5 million of its Chevy, GMC, and Cadillac trucks and SUVs over brake problems following an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that started in November. The NHTSA said in a statement the "vehicles may experience brake boost failure, which would require increased brake pedal effort, leading to a hard brake pedal feel, and potentially increased stopping distance". GM did not immediately explain why the Canadian recall occurred more than two months before it called back the vehicles in the United States. GM has been repairing affected vehicles since December 2018, and issued a recall in Canada in June. GM said global numbers for the recall weren't available.

The models impacted by the recall include the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks from model year 2014-18.

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. Owners were to be notified starting September 6.


The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, the US government's road safety agency, began investigating the problem a year ago after getting 111 complaints from owners of poor brake performance.

GM also is recalling over 177,000 Chevrolet Malibu sedans from the 2018 model year in the USA because the fuel injectors can fail.

GMC Yukon - The GM recall 2019 covers 296,748 GMC Yukon vehicles with model years from 2015 to 2018. Dealers will reprogram the engine control computer to correct the problem.
