    GM is recalling 3.4M trucks for the vacuum pump issue.
    Most 2014 - 2018 models.
    Google up the site of your choice to get more details.

    I saw that on the news today, looked it up on the NHTSA. I'm wondering if I should take mine into the local dealer or just wait and see if I get a card in the mail saying to take it in. Also, how would I even know if they actually fix it if I'm not noticing any issues right now and am not getting an error message... Boo.

    Just an FYI. I was in for an oil change this week, the only thing they mentioned and performed was a software update for the brakes.

    Apparently the seal fails in the vacuum pump allowing oil to get past affecting brake booster... without looking it up exactly. I remember hearing about this about 2 yrs ago.

    Was at the dealer for an oil change, and the next day the recall hit. Great timing.

    I have this issue. Almost ran over a Miami Beach Leo because of it. Will be going in for service in the very near future.
