GM Recalls 293,000 Chevy Cruze Cars For Brake Problems
Brake problems in Chevy Cruze cause 27 crashes.

— After receiving reports of 27 crashes related to a braking problem, General Motors is recalling about 293,000 model year 2011-2012 Chevy Cruze cars.

GM said the cars were manufactured at a plant in Lordstown, Ohio, and include only those vehicles with a 4-cylinder turbocharged 1.4-liter engine.

The 27 crashes involved a micro-switch in the brake assist system.  GM dealers will replace the switch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly, although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hasn't released a date for the recall.
