Now this is getting bad as it seems that the General Motors is making it a habit of recalling cars from the market, but in another side that could be very helpful for consumers. The latest additions to this list are Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse Sedans. General Motors has called in approximately about 8000 Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse Sedans to address issues in front brake assembly.
Now this is quite a huge number, considering the fact that it has already happened with them quite a few times in the recent time, the alarm has been sounded to make amends else General Motors might see a down in the market.
According to the press release by the General Motors, the reason behind calling in the 8000 Chevy Malibu and Buick LaCrosse Sedans are the front brakes. According to them, the assembly of the front brakes in the cars has some trouble and it must be changed in order to prevent crashes. Due to the wrong assembly, the power of the brakes has been reduced greatly. General Motors thinks that such cars should not at all be allowed to be on the roads as they endanger the ones inside the cars well as the ones outside.
Presently, there are about 1700 Chevy Malibu and Buick LaCrosse Sedans out on the roads and GM has urged all of them to land in for a checking. General Motors have also barred the dealers from selling anything without proper check up. It is good to see that General Motors is paying extra attention to the issues as they have already taken part in a controversy. The issue with faulty ignition system has already killed 13 people and General Motors does not want to repeat any similar sort of incident.
