2018 Chevrolet Equinox

Manufacturer image

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 210,600 model-year 2018-19 Buick LaCrosse sedans and Regal cars; Cadillac XTS sedans; Chevrolet Equinox SUVs, Impala sedans, Cruze cars, Volt hybrids and Bolt EV electric vehicles; GMC Terrain SUVs; and model-year 2018 Chevrolet Malibu cars

The Problem: The rear brake caliper pistons may have an insufficient coating that can cause gas pockets to form, potentially reducing rear brake performance and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will bleed the vehicle’s brake system for free.
