GM, Hyundai recall vehicles in US
CHICAGO, Illinois (AFP) - General Motors (GM) and Hyundai both recalled large numbers of vehicles in the United States (US) on Friday.
The GM recall was issued to fix a defect in the Chevrolet Cruze that can cause some vehicles to lose the brake assist function.
If the brake assist function fails, drivers would need to exert extra pressure on the brake pedal to stop the vehicle.
The largest US automaker said it was aware of 27 low-speed crashes linked to the defect, none of which resulted in serious injury.
