Everything You Need to Know About the GM Recall

A GM recall announced today affects millions of full-size trucks and SUVs because of a brake problem.

Here is everything you need to know about the GM recall.

It Affects 3.4 Million Vehicles

The GM recall affects 3.4 million pickup trucks and SUVs from 2014 to 2018 including

  • Cadillac Escalade
  • Chevrolet Silverado
  • Chevrolet Suburban
  • Chevrolet Tahoe
  • GMC Sierra
  • GMC Yukon

It’s a Braking Problem

According to General Motors, the vehicles above may “in rare circumstances, these vehicles may have a condition in which the engine-mounted mechanical vacuum pump output may decrease over time, decreasing the amount of vacuum/power brake assist.”

This can lead to a feeling that the brake pedal needs more effort, hardens, or the vehicle doesn’t stop as efficiently and quickly. The feeling and problem is more likely to occur at lower speeds.

The Problem is Linked to Accidents and Injuries

The problem has been linked to 113 accidents and 13 injuries so far.

What Will GM Do?

GM dealerships will reprogram the electronic brake control module in order to make sure the braking system uses brake boost assist when the vacuum assist is not longer available.
