GM re­calls over 1 mil­lion pick­ups and SUVs

The Peterborough Examiner - - Business | Classified -

DETROIT — Gen­eral Mo­tors is re­call­ing more than a mil­lion big pickup trucks and SUVs in the U.S. be­cause of power-as­sisted steer­ing prob­lems that have been cited in a num­ber of ac­ci­dents. GM says the power steer­ing can fail mo­men­tar­ily dur­ing a volt­age drop, mainly dur­ing lowspeed turns. The com­pany says it has 30 reports of crashes with two in­juries, but no deaths. The re­call cov­ers cer­tain 2015 Chevro­let Sil­ver­ado and GMC Sierra 1500 pick­ups as well as Chevy Ta­hoe and Sub­ur­ban SUVs. Also af­fected are 2015 Cadil­lac Es­calade and GMC Yukon SUVs. Deal­ers will up­date the power steer­ing soft­ware at no cost to own­ers. No date has been set to no­tify cus­tomers, but GM says the soft­ware is avail­able now, so own­ers can con­tact deal­ers to sched­ule re­pairs.
