GM Canada recalls about 19,000 vehicles over brake issue


General Motors Canada is recalling about 19,000 vehicles because a problem with the brake system could lead to crashes.

In certain vehicles, gas bubbles can form in the brake fluid and lead to “a soft brake pedal feel and a reduction in brake performance,” according to a recall notice on Transport Canada’s website.

The government agency says that increases the risk of a crash or injury.

Neither GM Canada nor Transport Canada has reported any crashes or injuries.

Affected vehicles from the model years 2018 and 2019 include the Buick Lacrosse, Cadillac XTS, GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Bolt EV, Cruze, Equinox, Impala, Malibu and Volt.

To fix the problem, GM dealers will bleed the rear brakes as necessary.

The recall notice uses some of the same language as one issued for FCA vehicles in mid-August. That recall also affected vehicles from the 2018 and 2019 model years. But, it was unclear whether the recall was for the same issue.
