General Motors announcing another 1.3m unit recall

General Motors has recently announced another recall which is affecting a total of 1.3 million units this time in the American market because of a problem with the power steering.

The General Motors total recall in the past month has just reached 6 million affected vehicles after the last one, which is affecting a total of 1.3 million cars, has been announced by the North American based automaker. The newest recall has been announced because of a sudden loss of electric power steering assist, which can increase the risk of an accident.

“If power steering assist is lost, a message displays on the Driver Information Center and a chime sounds to inform the driver. Steering control can be maintained because the vehicle will revert to manual steering, but greater driver effort would be required at low vehicle speeds, which could increase the risk of a crash”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

The affected vehicles are all the 2004 and 2005 and some 2006, 2008 and 2009 Chevrolet Malibu, all model year 2004 and 2005 and some 2006 model year Malibu Maxx, some 2009 and 2010 Chevrolet HHR non turbo, some 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, some 2008 and 2009 Saturn Aura, some 2004-2007 Saturn ION and all 2005 and some 2006, 2008 and 2009 Pontiac G6. Owners of these vehicles will be notified by GM soon and the necessary repairs will be made free of charge.

    So has anyone been called up before congress like they did with Toyota?

  2. @Good_Lt says:

    Where are all of the Obama speeches from the plant extolling the value of this organization to the taxpayer?

    After all, they had no problem extracting billions of dollars from the taxpayers to keep it from going under.

    Another Administration success story.
