GM Recalls 221,558 Cadillac and Chevy Vehicles

Destiny Baker2 years ago

General Motors (GM) has issued a recall for 221,558 Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Impala vehicles stating that the vehicles’ brake pads can stay partially engaged, increasing the risk of fire.

About the GM Brake Recall

The Wall Street Journal reports that the electronic parking brake arm that applies pressure to the brake pads may fail to retract after being engaged.

When this occurs, the pads stay in contact with the rotor, leading to excessive brake heat and an increased risk of fire.

So far, GM has not found any accidents or injuries to be related to the defect.

Vehicles Included in the GM Brake Recall

  • The recall covers the following vehicles:
    • 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS
    • 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala
  • 205,309 of the affected vehicles were sold in the U.S.
