RECALL: GM Calls Back Some 2,000 Chevy Cruze’s For Braking Issues

The National Highway Traffic Administration has announced they are issuing a mandatory recall of 1,733 cars manufactured between February 4, 2015 and February 9, 2015 due to concerns regarding the functionality of the parking brake.

The issue is inside the brake cable brackets. When not fastened properly, the bracket can separate completely, dramatically increasing the possibility of a runaway car or a hazardous crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect both rear parking brake brackets bolts, tightening them as necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in this month. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM’s number for this recall is 15135.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
