General Motors is recalling more than 600,000 four-wheel trucks and SUVs because a software error on braking system, increase the risk of a crash.
The recall includes the 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2015-2020 Chevrolet Suburban, 2015-2020 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2014-2018 GMC Sierra 1500 and 2015-2020 GMC Yukon models.
General Motors states that 653,370 vehicles potentially affected worldwide. But no accidents have been reported.
Further, General Motors said that activation of the braking software is triggered by the failure of a wheel-speed sensor, leading to unintended braking on the opposite wheel. That would cause the vehicle to pull to one side, increasing the risk of a crash. That risk can be eliminated by driving in two-wheel drive mode until the recall repair is made.
GM will reprogram the vehicles’ software free of charge.
