General Motors has recalled almost 300,000 Chevrolet Cruze sedans for brake issues. The brake assist function can intermittently fail making braking more difficult. Drivers will have to put extra pressure on the brakes for the car to stop. According to GM, there have been at least 27 reported crashes related to the brake problems.
The recall includes 2011 and 2012 models with a six-speed automatic transmission as well as a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. The models recalled were manufactured at the U.S. Cruze assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio.
GM will notify owners of the recall and dealers will replace the faulty switch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly. For more information, customers can contact Chevrolet here.
