Product Safety Recall A202307262 Loss of Brake Assist – 2020-2021 Buick Encore GX, & 2020 Cadillac XT4


General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2020 – 2021 model year Buick Encore GX, and 2020 model year Cadillac XT4 vehicles. Material used in a sensor connection in the electronic brake boost system in these vehicles may have been contaminated during the material supplier’s production process. Contamination of this material may cause an interruption of communication between the sensor and the brake boost system under certain conditions. If communication with the sensor is interrupted, electronic brake boost assist could be lost. Extra pedal force will be required to slow and stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.


Dealers will replace the electronic brake boost module.
