GM issues recall of 3.4 million pickup trucks, SUVs to fix brake problem

Local Safety Alert

General Motors is recalling nearly three and a half million pickups and SUVs to fix a brake problem.

The company says there’s been more than 100 crashes and 13 injuries related to the issue. Recalled models include the Cadillac Escalade, GMC Yukon and Serra, as well as Chevrolet’s Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe, all made between 2014 and 2018.

GMsays the problem is a faulty vacuum pump that may force drivers to put more pressure on brakes. The vehicle may also need a longer distance to stop, which can increase the risk of crashes.

GM says dealers will fix the problem at no charge to customers.
