GM Recalls 1 Million Pickups, SUVs to Fix Power-Steering Flaw

General Motors Co has issued a safety recall for about 1.2 million pickup trucks and SUVs globally, citing problems with the power steering function.

DETROIT (AP) - General Motors is recalling more than 240,000 vehicles, mainly in the USA and Canada, to fix a problem that could hamper rear brake performance. A potential loss in power steering could cause difficulty in steering the vehicle and possibly lead to a crash.

The recall covers 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups and the mechanically similar Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade SUVs, also from the 2015 model year.

A similar power steering recall affected some 700,000 Chevrolet and GMC trucks in the U.S. previous year.

Dealers will bleed the brakes to remove gas.

The defective brake parts were built by German supplier ZF Group, which also supplied faulty brakes to the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE- and GLS-Class crossover SUVs.

GM says there have been 30 crashes because of the defect, with two injuries. GM dealers will update the power steering module software, free of charge for owners of the affected vehicles.
