The Problem: Cars can exhibit a loss of braking assist in certain situations; GM says it has received reports of 27 low-speed crashes related to this issue. In these instances, the driver may have to exert more pressure on the brake pedal than usual to bring the car to a stop.
The Fix: Dealers will remove a microswitch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly and replace the microswitch at no charge to owners.
