The issue is that the pump output can drop quickly and result in a loss of brake assist for the vehicle.

General Motors has issued a recall of 3.4 million pickup trucks and SUVs in the USA in order to fix a problem with brakes in the vehicles. An NHTSA statement said the "vehicles may experience brake boost failure, which would require increased brake pedal effort, leading to a hard brake pedal feel, and potentially increased stopping distance". GM recalled an additional 310,000 vehicles in Canada earlier this year for the same problem. GM said the secondary system is, right now, limited at lower speeds.

The recall includes Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup models from 2014 through 2018, as well as Cadillac Escalade models from 2015 to 2017, and the GMC Yukon, Chevy Suburban and Tahoe models from 2015 through 2018.

The millions of trucks and SUVs have a brake issue that GM said resides in aging pumps in the brake system. Owners can expect to be notified if their truck is subject to recall this month.

The recall comes after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating in November of past year. If the problem surfaces, owners will see a message on their dashboard telling them to service the brake assist system, Flores said.

Separately, GM said on Wednesday it is recalling 270,000 additional USA vehicles in three smaller recalls, including 177,000 2018 Chevrolet Malibu cars with 1.5L turbo engines because an error in the engine control module software may result in the fuel injectors being disabled. Dealers will reprogram the engine control computer to correct the problem.
