GM recalls 1M pickup trucks, SUVs over steering defect

GM recalls 1.2 million pickups, SUVs for power steering problem

If you drive a 2015 GM full-size truck or SUV, you can expect a notice coming in the mail soon as the company starts a recall campaign for 1.2 million vehicles from that model year over concerns that the power steering might fail without warning. A failure would increase the risk of a crash. They are: the Chevy Silverado 1500, Suburban and Tahoe, GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon and Yukon XL and Cadillac Escalade.

FCA had a big Ram recall in August, Ford had one of its own for the F-150 just last week, and now it's GM's turn for a massive pickup truck recall. A sudden loss of power steering can make it hard for drivers to maintain control of the vehicle, especially while making low-speed turns.

General Motors said Tuesday that it will recall 230,000 vehicles to fix a problem with their brake systems that could affect their stopping distances. Dealers will update the power steering software at no cost. Also covered is the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu.

The problem has been linked to 30 crashes and two injuries. GM said that about 210,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold new in the US, while the others were delivered to Canada. GM said in a government filing that "hydrogen gas can remain trapped in the piston body", which may make the brakes feel soft and take longer to stop the vehicle. Download the 10News app now.
