GM recalls 293,000 Cruzes for brake failure problem

LORDSTOWN

General Motors is recalling nearly 293,000 Chevrolet Cruze compact cars in the U.S. because the power-assisted brakes can fail.

The company says the recall affects Cruzes made in Lordstown from the 2011 and 2012 model years.

The power brake boosters can fail and in rare cases, drivers may have to put extra pressure on the pedals to stop the cars, according to GM.

Cruze brake problems have caused 27 low-speed crashes but no injuries, the company said.

Dealers will replace a switch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly for free.
