  • XT5 Hydraulic Brake Fluid Leaks

    carcomplaints.com

    While you're probably still digesting that extra serving of holiday cookies, here's something else to chew on – GM says some 2017 Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia SUVs will have diminished braking ability because of hydraulic fluid leaks. GM says a red "BRAKE" warning light will come on when this happens. So if you see that, stop driving as soon as possible – which in these SUVs could take quite a while. The bad caliper assemblies are on Acadias built between 04/19/2016 and 04/22/2016
