Braking issue prompts recall of numerous GM vehicles

Rear brake performance may be reduced, increasing a crash risk

General Motors is recalling 210,628 model year 2018-2019 Chevrolet Equinox, Impala, Cruze, Volt & Bolt EV vehicles, GMC Terrain vehicles, Buick Lacrosse & Regal vehicles, Cadillac XTS & XTS Professional vehicles and model year 2018 Chevrolet Malibus.

The rear brake caliper pistons may have an insufficient coating causing gas pockets to form, potentially reducing rear brake performance.

A reduction of braking performance can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

GM will notify owners, and dealers will bleed the vehicle's brake system, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Buick customer service at (800) 521-7300, Cadillac customer service at (800) 458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020, or GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 18279.
