It looks like the recall fairy is spending its summer in Detroit this year because General Motors just issued a recall for 210,628 vehicles in the US and 19,385 vehicles in Canada over reports that improperly chromed rear brake pistons are causing gas to form in the braking system's hydraulic circuit leading to a soft, spongy brake pedal.
If you're a particularly eagle-eyed reader, then you might be thinking, "Hey, that sounds familiar. Why does that sound familiar? What gives?" Well, friend, that's because Fiat Chrysler recalled for the something that sounds identical just a few weeks ago.
The brake calipers in question appear to have come from the ZF group in Germany, which reports that it is also looking into its calipers that were equipped on Audi, BMW and Volkswagen vehicles.
