General Motors has issued a recall for nearly 3.8 million large pickup trucks and SUV’s in Canada and the U.S due to a problem with the brakes.
The recall covers the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra models from 2014 to 2018,
Also in the recall are the 2015-2017 models of the Cadillac Escalade, GMC Yukon, Chevy Suburban and Chevy Tahoe.
According to GM, 310-thousand of the affected vehicles are in Canada.
The issue is that, as it ages, the pump in the power-assisted brakes can put out less vacuum power than needed, resulting in increased stopping distance and an increased risk of a crash.
GM has said that even with the problem, the brakes continue to function and exceed the requirements of the appropriate federal motor vehicle safety standard.
They add that the repair is quite easy and can be done quickly. Anyone who has been issued a recall notice can contact their local dealership for the simple repair.
