Recall Alert: 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport

2012 chevrolet captiva sport
GM is recalling 2,070 model-year 2012 versions of the Chevrolet Captiva Sport because of problems with the parking brake, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The compact crossover may look familiar; Chevy rebadged the Saturn Vue for fleet-only sales in the U.S. 

The affected vehicles, which were built between April 26 and May 17, 2012, have a faulty parking brake cable that could separate from its connector, rendering it inoperable. (You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) This could lead to parking brake failure and an increased risk of an accident.

GM will notify owners starting July 18, and dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Chevrolet at 866-694-6546 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
