General Motors In Major Steering Recall
March 2, 2010
US (ChattahBox) – General Motors (GM) has announced that they are to become the latest car manufacturer to take part in a major recall, with 1.3 million compact vehicles suspected of power steering problems.
The issues are believed to be the cause of fourteen accidents so far, one of which led to injury earlier this year.
“After our in-depth investigation, we found that this is a condition that takes time to develop. It tends to occur in older models out of warranty,” GM said in an official statement.
“Recalling these vehicles is the right thing to do for our customers’ peace of mind.”
The recall covers several models, including the 2005 – 2010 models of the Chevrolet Cobalt, the 2007 – 2010 Pontiac G5, the 2005 – 2006 Pontiac G4, and the 2005 – 2006 Pontiac Pursuit.
The recall seems to be further proof of the need for increased policy changes in company safety procedures for car manufacturers.
