General Motors [NYSE:GM] has recalled certain 2009-2010 Chevrolet Aveo models, for an issue that could lead to compromised braking performance.

In affected vehicles, fluids used in the hydraulic braking system might not inhibit corrosion as they should for some critical components; this could potentially lead to longer brake pedal travel and/or reduced braking performance, according to the automaker.

The issue affecting these Aveo and G3 models, according to the Detroit News, is the same one that prompted the delayed recall of the 2009-2012 Hyundai Genesis—for which Hyundai was just fined $17.35 million.

GM had already been addressing the issue on a car-by-car basis, with a service campaign started in November 2012.

The Chevrolet Aveo and G3 were built by GM in Korea, as a federalized version of a model that sold elsewhere as the Daewoo Kalos.

The recall also covers the short-lived, Pontiac G3, essentially a rebadged version of the Aveo.
