New GM sedans with brake issues recalled
Some 8,200 General Motors (GM) 2014 model sedans with a braking issue were recently recalled by the manufacturer, a CBS News article stated on May 16.
In the documents received by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the front brake pads in the recent Buick Lacrosse and Chevrolet Malibu sedans easily degrade. Reports said the issue happens because the rear brake rotors, which are thinner, were mistakenly installed in the front of the vehicles. Vehicles affected by the braking issue may experience braking delays or even braking failure in the front wheels. GM has not received any reports of injuries from the affected vehicles. The automaker said dealerships will fix the issue by changing the vehicles’ brake rotors and pads for free.
