General Motors is recalling 1,733 2015 model-year Chevrolet Cruze cars because the parking brakes might fail, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.

The recall, set to begin this month, affects Cruzes manufactured Feb. 4-9 of this year. The left-rear or right-rear parking brake cable brackets may not have been properly fastened during the assembly process, NHTSA said. As a result, the fastening bolts may back out completely, causing the parking brake bracket to separate. The parking brake may then fail to hold the vehicle in place. 

GM dealers will inspect the left-rear and right-rear parking brake brackets bolts, tightening them as necessary. There will be no charge for this service.

Vehicle owners can reach Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 15135.
