GM Issues Recall For 1M Pickups, SUVs Due To Power Steering Problem

It said it has introduced changes since 2015 to mitigate the problem, which causes temporary loss of power steering and makes it hard to steer, especially under low-speed conditions.

The recall covers certain 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups as well as Chevy Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. GM's number for this recall is 18289. Such a failure increases the risk of a crash. Also affected are 2015 Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon SUVs. Normally when your power steering is having a problem, you gradually notice it due to a fluid leak or a bad pump.

The same issue prompted the firm to recall about 800,000 pickup trucks a year ago.

The recall campaign hasn't officially begun, so don't rush to call your dealer and set up an appointment to get it fixed just yet.

Dealers will bleed the brakes to remove gas. The updated software is available now, so customers can contact their dealers for repairs, said spokesman Tom Wilkinson.
