The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently announced a recall for the Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.
According to the car manufacturer, a small number of the 2014 Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL full-size SUVs will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a possible brake issue. The rear brake caliper bolts may not be tightened to specification, GM says, and this may reduce braking performance, resulting and longer stopping distances and increasing the risk of a crash and injury.
The affected 2014 Chevrolet Suburban vehicles have been produced between July 9, 2013, and July 22, 2013, the Tahoe between July 16, 2013 and July 23, 2013, the 2014 GMC Yukon between July 13,2013, and July 18, 2013, and the Yukon XL on July 22. GM says that there are just 10 affected SUVs. Owners will be notified and dealers will inspect bolts on both rear brake caliper brackets and replace and tighten the loose bolts found.
