GM Issues Recall For 1M Pickups, SUVs Due To Power Steering Problem

General Motors Co has issued a safety recall for about 1.2 million pickup trucks and SUVs globally, citing problems with the power steering function.

The Detroit-based automaker is recalling over 1.2 million SUVs and full-size pickups because of a concern with the steering mechanism, which may increase the likelihood of a crash.

GM says the power steering can fail momentarily during a voltage drop and suddenly return, mainly during low-speed turns. A total of 96,000 of the vehicles were sold in Canada. The recall is for 2015 models.




The recall covers certain 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups as well as Chevy Tahoe and Suburban SUVs.

The firm, which started investigating the issue in June after complaints, said the issue is linked to 30 crashes and two injuries but no deaths. Normally when your power steering is having a problem, you gradually notice it due to a fluid leak or a bad pump.

GM has stated that they will notify owners of these vehicles, and dealers will be able to update the EPS module software, free of charge.
