GM sedans in the U.S. that may catch fire recalled

Posted on October 2, 2014 11:32 am under Automotive Defects

General Motors (GM) issued a recall of over 200,000 sedans in the U.S. to fix a braking problem that may potentially result in the vehicles catching fire, USA Today on September 20 said.

Reports said 221,558 Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Impalas may have a defective parking brake arm. The recalled vehicles could potentially catch fire if the brake pads come in contact with the rotor, producing excessive heat. GM stated that any injuries or accidents involving the affected vehicles have not been reported. A notification will be sent to owners of the recalled vehicles for a free repair.
