CNN -- General Motors is recalling more than 8,500 Buick Lacrosse and Chevrolet Malibu sedans for a flaw in the brake assembly.

USA Today reports rear brake rotors may have been mistakenly installed into the front brake system.

The problem could shorten brake pad life and reduce brake performance, increasing the risk of an accident.

No crashes or injuries related to the recall have been reported.

Affected customers will be notified and can request a loaner car while waiting for inspection and repairs.
