General Motors has issued yet another recall, this time affecting some 221,000 vehicles worldwide. Model year 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impalas have been recalled over an issue with the electronic parking brake, the Detroit News reports. The cars "may experience poor vehicle acceleration, undesired deceleration, excessive brake heat, and premature wear to some brake components," the company notes. GM says it doesn't know of any resulting crashes or injuries, CNNMoney reports. The company is due to pay 19 death claims over ignition-switch problems. (More General Motors stories.)
