Recall 14V460000

Anti-Lock Brake System Malfunction

Recall Details

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) module may experience corrosion to its internal valves, causing the valves to stick. Sticking valves will reduce braking performance. Dealers will replace the ABS module free of charge to resolve the problem.

Our Quick Take

The anti-lock brake system module may malfunction, resulting in longer brake pedal travel or reduced braking performance.

What Should You Do?

General Motors notified owners of affected vehicles starting in September 2014. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them. The General Motors recall number is 14505.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Chevrolet Aveo and 2009 Pontiac G3 vehicles. The vehicles may contain brake fluid which does not protect against corrosion of the valves inside the anti-lock brake system (ABS) module, affecting the closing motion of the valves.
Consequence
If the ABS valve corrodes it may result in longer brake pedal travel or reduced performance, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ABS module, free of charge, in any vehicle that did not have its module replaced under a previous customer satisfaction campaign. The recall is expected to begin in mid-September 2014. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), and 1-800-762-2737 (Pontiac). GM's number for this recall is 14505.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
