Auto manufacturer General Motors (GM) issued recall to 221,558 sedans primarily in the U.S. that may catch fire due to a defective parking brake, an article stated on September 20.
According to the recall, some recent models of Chevrolet Impalas and Cadillac XTS sedans are equipped with a faulty electric parking brake arm that may get stuck after use. The affected vehicles are at risk of catching fire as a result of the brake pad grazing the rotor and creating friction. GM said that they are unaware of any injuries or any incidents caused by the affected sedans. Owners will receive notification from their dealers to have their vehicles fixed for free.
