GM recalls 340,000 cars over brake glitch
Washington: US automaker General Motors Corporation (GM) is recalling nearly 340,000 Chevrolet Cruze cars over a brake-related problem, a media report said.

The Detroit-based automaker said the brake problem has been found only in Cruzes with the 1.4-litre turbocharged engine and six-speed automatic transmission, Xinhua reported.

The recall covers 292,879 Cruze vehicles in the US, 44,789 in Canada and 641 in Israel.

The compact sedans were built at GM's Lordstown assembly plant in Ohio. It does not cover Cruze vehicles built at other plants, the Detroit News said.

GM said it was aware of 27 low-speed crashes, but no injuries, tied to the problem.

Dealers will replace a microswitch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly to correct the issue.

In June, GM said it would recall about 231,000 older SUVs over fire risks and urged owners to park them outside garages until they are repaired. These included 193,000 Chevrolet Trailblazers, GMC Envoys, Buick Rainiers, SAAB 9-7xs, Isuzu Ascenders and Chevrolet Trailblazer EXTs and GMC Envoy XLs in the US.
