The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched a probe involving 2.7 million pickup trucks and SUVs from General Motors over concerns that their braking ability may fade over time, increasing the risk of crashes.
According to NHTSA, 111 complaints have been filed with the agency about the problem, including nine reports of crashes. In addition, there have been two reports of injuries resulting from two of those crashes. No fatalities have been reported, NHTSA says. The probe may lead to a recall, but for now, it is considered an investigation.
