General Motors has issued a massive recall involving more than 3.4 million pickup trucks and SUVs to correct a brake problem, The Associated Press reported.

The recall includes:

  • Chevrolet Silverado from 2014-2018
  • GMC Sierra 1500 from 2014-2018
  • GMC Sierra 2500 from 2014-2018
  • GMC Sierra 3500 from 2014-2018
  • Cadillac Escalade from 2014-2017
  • GMC Yukon from 2015-2018
  • Chevy Suburban from 2015-2018
  • Chevy Tahoe from 2015-2018

As the cars get older, the pump in the power-assist brakes may not have enough power than needed. That will mean drivers could need more time and space to stop and increase the risk of a crash, the AP reported.

Owners have started to be notified of the issue and dealers will recalibrate the electronic brake control module for free, according to the AP.
