GM recalls 1M pickup trucks, SUVs over steering defect

15 September 2018

GM's number for this recall is 18289.

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.

This is especially true at low speeds and increases the risk of a crash.

General Motors is recalling more than 210,000 cars in the U.S.to fix faulty brakes.

GM also recalled 2014 trucks a year ago to address the same issue.

The U.N. warned last week that such an offensive would lead to the "worst humanitarian catastrophe in the 21st century". A senior security source said the army has reinforced 12 Turkish military posts inside Idlib itself.

They include the Chevrolet Silverado SD; the GMC Yukon; the GMC Sierra LD; and the Chevrolet Tahoe. The software update is already available, so customers can begin to schedule repairs with their local dealer, according to the Associated Press.

The recall covers many GMC Terrain, Buick Lacrosse and Regal, Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Cruze, Equinox, Volt, Impala and Bolt vehicles from 2018 and 2019. GM said that about 210,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold new in the USA, while the others were delivered to Canada.

The flaw, attributed to an electrical and software issue, has led to 30 accidents, including two injuries, but no fatalities, the automaker said in an email.

At an unspecified date, dealers will replace the rear calipers and bleed the brake system to clear the lines of trapped gas.
