General Motors recalls more than 120 thousand of its cars due to brake problems

The second wave of a large-scale service campaign includes GMC and Chevrolet pickups, as well as the luxury Cadillac CT6 sedan.

General Motors has announced another revocable campaign. This time, GMC and Chevrolet pickups of the 2019 model year, as well as luxury Cadillac CT6 sedans, are sent for repairs. 128 519 vehicles were immediately brought into the number of “problematic” ones. They all need repairs due to a malfunction in the braking system. Back in early December last year, due to the same defect, the American automaker recalled 463,995 units of transport. To correct the situation, specialists needed to update the software.

Such manipulations, as experts have found, not only do not solve the problem, but also exacerbate it.

 Then another way was proposed: in the dealerships in the vehicles that were under review, the electronic brake control module (ECBM) will be “reflashed”. He will get a new calibration, which not only negates the failure of the brakes, but also solves all the latest complaints from car owners.

 Recall, NHTSA specialists began to receive complaints from owners of GM cars about partial or complete failure of the brakes almost immediately after the first wave of the recall campaign.
