GM Recalls Over 1 Million Vehicles for Power Steering Defect

GM Announced this week they were recalling over 1 million trucks and SUVs due to a possible electric power steering defect.  The vehicles in question may experience a sudden loss of power steering which may increase the risk of crash. The vehicles included in this recalls are 2015 models of the Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade.

Last year GM issued a similar recall for 700k trucks and SUVs for a similar problem. They associated that issue with a voltage issue and the approved service technicians were easy to fix the issue with a software update. The recall was only for 2014 models and seemingly corrected the issue before 2015 model year was released. It appears as if the 2015 model is experiencing a similar defect.

GM has not determined when they will begin notifying customers if their truck or SUV is affected. However, we always encourage our readers to visit NHTSA online and enter your VIN. This will give you accurate and up to date information on all recalls associated with your specific vehicle, even if you are not the original owner.

If you’ve been injured as a result of a defect on a recalled vehicle or product, please contact us today. We also encourage you to visit the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration websites to file formal complaints about potential safety hazards.
