Another GM recall, this time for the Buick Lacrosse and Chevy Malibu
Fri, 16 May 2014 18:24:05 GMT —
After announcing a recall of 2.7 million cars and trucks yesterday, General Motors has added another 8,200 cars to the list.
The 2014 Buick Lacrosse and Chevrolet Malibu models had their brakes installed incorrectly.
The rear brake rotors were installed on the front. The rear rotors are thinner, and so they could detach from the caliper.
As a result, vehicles could take longer to stop, which could lead to crashes.
Dealers were told to stop delivering the vehicles on May 1st. Those with the vehicles should start getting letters about the recall on May 29th.
This is separate from the Malibu recall announced yesterday, which dealt with hydraulic brake booster malfunctions in the 2014 model year and taillamp malfunctions in the 2004 to 2012 model years.
This is the sixth recall for General Motors this week alone, with 24 recalls in total this year.
