Nov. 26, 2018—The U.S. government is investigating more than 100 complaints of poor brake performance on 2.7 million General Motors pickups and SUVs, reported The Journal Gazette.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a brake vacuum pump can deteriorate, causing increased braking effort and longer stopping distances. The agency has 111 consumer complaints, including nine crashes and two injuries.
The investigation covers 2014 through 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups, the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, and the GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade SUVs, according to the report.
