GM is voluntarily recalling just 10 model-year 2014 full-size SUVs due to a problem with the brakes that could affect stopping distances, according to the automaker.
The affected vehicles include four Chevrolet Suburbans and three Tahoes, as well as two GMC Yukons and one Yukon XL. The vehicles' rear brake caliper bolts may not be fully tightened, which could produce noise while driving and take longer to stop the vehicle. GM said it is unaware of any crashes or injuries resulting from the problem.
The automaker began notifying owners Aug. 2, and dealers will correct the problem for free. Dealers will inspect the torque on both rear brake caliper bracket bolts; if the bolt is not properly tightened, two new bolts will be installed, GM stated. Chevrolet owners can call 866-694-6546, and GMC owners can call 866-996-9463. For more info, owners can also call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.Related
