April 2, 2014 9:53 am

General Motors Co has said it is recalling more than 1.5 million vehicles because they may unexpectedly lose power steering, Reuters has reported. This brings to 6.26 million the number of vehicles recalled by GM since the start of this year. The models affected are the 2010 Cobalt compact, the Chevrolet HHR compact from model years 2009 and 2010, and the Saturn ION compact from model year 2004 to 2007. “Steering control can be maintained because the vehicle will revert to manual steering, but greater driver effort would be required at low vehicle speeds, which could increase the risk of a crash,” GM said.
