Vehicles Affected: Approximately 20,300 model-year 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks

The Problem: The bolts used to attach the front and rear brake calipers may not have been heat-treated and may break under load, reducing brake performance or interfering with wheel rotation and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake caliper bolts for free.
