Transport Canada to review GM brake issues

Following the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)’s probe in November, Transport Canada has opened a probe into braking issues in nearly 250,000 General Motors full-size pickups and SUVs.

Transport Canada’s probe covers 249,700 2015 through 2017 model year vehicles including the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon as well as 2014-2017 Chevrolet Silverado LD and GMC Sierra LD vehicles.

The U.S. agency said it had 487 reports of hard brake pedal effort and nine incidents of vehicles incurring damage as a result of colliding with another vehicle or fixed object at low speeds and reports of two injuries. NHTSA said if the pump fails to operate, the amount of brake power assist can be significantly reduced, extending vehicle stopping distance.
