Holden recalls almost 14,000 Commodores over fears brake boosters could fail

“”

General Motors has recalled almost 14,000 Holden ZB Commodores due to fears the cars' brake boosters could fail.

“”

The ZB Commodores were the final generation of Holden's iconic nameplate, and were not made in Australia, but imported.

“”

The recall, which was issued on Monday, affects 13,898 cars in the country with models between 2017 and 2020 impacted.

“”

If a ZB Commodore's brake booster were to fail the distance in which the car would stop would be greater than the distance prescribed by the Australian Design Rule.

“”

This "could increase the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users", according to the recall notice.

“”

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by General Motors Australia and New Zealand and asked to contact their local dealer to have the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) software updated, free of charge.
