GM Expands 2014 Recall For Power Steering Failure

General Motors is expanding a recall from last March to include more than 81,000 additional cars because their power steering systems could suddenly fail, making the vehicles harder to turn. The current action is in addition to the previous recall that covered 1.3 million vehicles in the United States. A spokesman for GM said it is aware of one crash, but no injuries, related to a defect in the cars’ electronic steering system.

The newly recalled models are the 2006-2007 Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx and the 2006-2007 Pontiac G6, according to a report posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website. The additional vehicles were recalled after an investigation by Transport Canada, that country’s counterpart to the NHTSA. The Canadian regulators said some owners in Canada had complained of power steering failures on cars not included in the original recall. That prompted GM to investigate, and it concluded that there was more than one reason that the power steering might fail, so the problem applied to more vehicles than expected. GM initially recalled the vehicles last March after years of trying to handle the problem quietly by sending technical service bulletins to dealers. Those bulletins warned dealers of the problem and told them how to fix it, but only if an owner complained
