Although they tried to take maximum advantage from the loss image suffered by rivals Toyota, General Motors could see itself in a similar scandal.
NHTSA, is responsible for road safety, currently investigating a problem in the braking system of a large number of GM vehicles, 6,200,000 units.
The cars were made between 1999 and 2003 and may be affected by a corrosion brake.
This concerns exactly the degradation of liquid pipeline that feeds the entire brake system of the models.
Undetected in time, the problems may lead to loss of pressure in the braking system and drastic consequences on the road.
NHTSA opened the procedure, after recently been totaled 110 complaints of brake corrosion.
The models affected by the process of investigation and a possible massive recall are Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Avalanche, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Yukon and GMC Sierra.
