General Motors is recalling 8,208 2014 Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans for a problem with the front brake assembly, the company’s fifth recall in the last two weeks.

GM said in a statement that the cars are being recalled for “possible reduced braking performance” because rear brake rotors might have been installed in the front brake assembly.

“The condition could significantly shorten front brake pad life and reduce brake system performance, increasing the risk of a crash,” GM said.

About 1,700 of the cars are in customers’ hands; the rest are in dealer inventory. GM said it is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the problem and said it expects that only a “small percentage” of the recalled vehicles will have the wrong front rotors.
