General Motors is recalling more than 3.4 million big pickup trucks and SUVs in the U.S.to fix a brake problem. The recall affects 3.46 million 2015-2017 Cadillac Escalade, 2014-2018 Chevy Silverado, 2015-2018 Chevy Suburban, 2015-2018 Chevy Tahoe, 2014-2018 GMC Sierra, and 2015-2018 GMC Yukon vehicles.

As the pumps in the power-assist brakes put out less vacuum power than is needed, "customers may experience increased brake pedal effort, hard brake pedal, and/or potentially increased stopping distance".

The recall comes after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating in November of past year.

The recall follows reports of 113 crashes and 13 injuries. Starting September 6, unlucky auto owners are being notified if their truck or SUV is part of the recall. The problem behind the recall is the vacuum brake assist pump that these vehicles use. In some of the trucks, oil sludge or other debris can clog the screen, reducing oil flow and causing the pump's vacuum output to drop, Flores said. Thus, the remedy will involve a tweak to the secondary power brake assist system with a reprogramming, which kicks in if the vehicle detects a problem with the main system.

Researchers also say the couple was likely buried this way intentionally , which was not an unusual funeral practice during that time.

GM will not replace the pumps in the vehicles, however.

GM also told NHTSA that earlier models used a different brake assist system design, and cars manufactured after 2018 were not equipped with the affected pump design. A message will also populate on the dashboard telling the driver to service the brake system.

GM also is recalling over 177,000 Chevrolet Malibu sedans from the 2018 model year in the USA because the fuel injectors can fail. Engines may not start, or in rare cases, could stall without warning.
