General Motors recalls certain vehicles due to possible steering issue

Posted: Updated:

General Motors LLC has sent out a notice that they are recalling certain 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Sierra 1500 and Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade vehicles. 

According to a press release, electric power steering (EPS) assist may be lost momentarily, followed by a sudden return of EPS assist.

GM reported that if EPS is lost and suddenly returns, the driver of the vehicle could have difficulty steering.

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

GM has stated that they will notify owners of these vehicles, and dealers will be able to update the EPS module software, free of charge.

According to the press release, the manufacturer has not yet produced a schedule of notification. 

The press release informed that owners are able to contact Cadillac GMC customer service at  1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 and GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 18289.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
