At least 221,558 sedans in the U.S. and other countries are being recalled by General Motors (GM) to fix a braking problem that may result in fire, USA Today reported on September 20.
According to reports, the recall affects several models of GM Cadillac and Impala sedans with a faulty electronic parking brake arm. The parking break may not fully retract, causing high temperatures when the partially engaged break pad grazes the rotor. Incidents of injuries or fire have not yet been reported to GM. Owners are advised to take their vehicles to local dealerships so they can be repaired.
Injuries caused by manufacturing errors or design flaws can be devastating, and people often suffer great financial loss. Negligent automakers may be held liable, and you may possibly get remunerations to recover your loss.
