GM Power Steering Recall

General Motors (GM) is recalling 69,633 vehicles due to potential steering problems, which could increase the risk of an accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), these vehicles may experience a sudden loss of power steering assist that could occur at any time while driving. A message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center and a chime sounds to inform the driver that it has occurred. Drivers will still be able to steer, but greater force will be required even while driving at low speeds.
