Certain model year 2015 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles are being recalled for a manufacturing error.

General Motors is recalling more than 1,700 cars because the left-rear or right-rear parking brake cable brackets may not have been properly fastened during the assembly process. As a result, the fastening bolts may back out completely, causing the parking brake bracket to separate and the parking brake to not hold the vehicle in place.

The cars fail to comply with federal safety standards and if the parking brake bracket separates, the parking brake may not hold the vehicle.

GM will notify affected owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the left-rear and right-rear parking brake brackets bolts, free of charge.

For more information, owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020.
