    General Motors has issued a massive recall involving more than 3.4 million pickup trucks and SUVs to correct a brake problem, The Associated Press reported.

    The recall includes:

    • Chevrolet Silverado from 2014-2018
    • GMC Sierra 1500 from 2014-2018
    • GMC Sierra 2500 from 2014-2018
    • GMC Sierra 3500 from 2014-2018
    • Cadillac Escalade from 2014-2017
    • GMC Yukon from 2015-2018
    • Chevy Suburban from 2015-2018
    • Chevy Tahoe from 2015-2018

    As the cars get older, the pump in the power-assist brakes may not have enough power than needed. That will mean drivers could need more time and space to stop and increase the risk of a crash, the AP reported.

    Owners have started to be notified of the issue and dealers will recalibrate the electronic brake control module for free, according to the AP.
