General Motors is recalling more than 210,000 SUVs and pickup trucks because a faulty brake component could reduce the effectiveness of the rear brakes and increase the risk of a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The GM brake recall affects certain 2018-2019 Chevrolet Equinox SUVs, Impala and Cruze sedans, and Bolt and Volt electric vehicles; GMC Terrain SUVs; Buick Lacrosse and Regal cars; Cadillac XTS SUVs; and 2018 Chevrolet Malibu sedans.

NHTSA said that a faulty brake-system component may cause bubbles to form in the brake fluid, which could reduce rear braking performance.

GM was informed about the problem by the part supplier ZF, according to a NHTSA filing. It is a problem that has affected Audi and Volkswagen, Dodge and Jeep, and Mercedes-Benz vehicles, a GM spokesman said.

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.
