General Motors is now recalling 3.4 million vehicles to fix a brake problem.

This recall covers many big pickup trucks and SUV's in the United States and deals with a pump in the power-assist brakes. There could be an issue that causes less vacuum power than needed and is increasing stopping distance and also the risk of a crash. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began an investigation into the brakes in November of 2018. The dealers of the trucks and SUV's will recalibrate the electronic brake control module to fix the problem.

The recall covers the following vehicles:

  • 2014 through 2018 model years of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickup trucks.
  • 2015 to 2017 Cadillac Escalade models.
  • and 2015 to 2018 GMC Yukons, Chevrolet Suburbans, and Chevrolet Tahoes.

General Motors began notifying owners of the recall on Friday, September 6th. If you are unsure if your vehicle is part of the recall, you can enter your VIN number here to find out.
