General Motors is recalling 1,844 2017-model year Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia vehicles because of potential problems with brake performance, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Cadillac XT5 SUVs involved were manufactured from April 16 to May 9 of this year. The GMC Acadia SUVs were manufactured from April 19 to April 22 of this year.

The front brake calipers in these vehicles may have a torn or misaligned caliper piston seal, which may allow brake fluid to leak. “If there is a brake fluid leak, braking performance may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said on its website.

Dealers will inspect the front brake calipers, replacing the brake caliper assemblies as necessary. There will be no charge for this service.

Vehicle owners can reach GM customer service at (800) 458-8006 (Cadillac), or (800) 462-8782 (GMC). GM’s number for this recall is 16096.
