General Motors Co. said Wednesday it is recalling 2,000 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport crossovers over potentially faulty parking brakes.
GM said some vehicles don’t meet federal brake performance requirements because the parking brake cable may separate from the connector and fail to operate.
In mid-May the condition was discovered at GM’s Ramos Assembly plant in Mexico – and 15 vehicles were found with separated brake cables that hadn’t been shipped.
A GM investigation found the problem followed a design change made in April. GM plans to begin the recall July 18 of vehicles built between April 26 and May 17..
GM dealers will inspect the cables to make sure they are secure.
No injuries or crashes were reported by GM.
GM has sold 17,921 Captiva Sport CUVs in the first half of the year.
