Automaker giant General Motors (GM) issued a recall of more than 200,000 sedans in the U.S. with braking issues that may cause the vehicles to catch fire, a report on September 20 stated.
At least 205,309 GM Impalas and Cadillacs are reportedly at risk of catching fire due to problems involving the breaking system. The company said the break pad may not retract once the parking break is released, potentially causing it to come in contact with the rotor and ignite. GM said they are unaware of any accidents or injuries involving the recalled sedans. Owners of the affected units will be notified promptly, and are invited to have their car repaired at a local dealership at no cost.
