DETROIT, Mich. (March 31, 2014) — General Motors issued a new recall Monday for more than 1.3 million U.S. vehicles that could experience a sudden loss of power steering.

The recall affects seven GM models manufactured between 2004 and 2010 as well as service parts installed in certain vehicles.

Full list:

  • Chevrolet Malibu: All model year 2004 and 2005, and some model year 2006 and model year 2008 and 2009 vehicles
  • Chevrolet Malibu Maxx: All model year 2004 and 2005, and some 2006 model year
  • Chevrolet HHR (Non-Turbo): Some model year 2009 and 2010 vehicles
  • Chevrolet Cobalt: Some model year 2010 vehicles
  • Saturn Aura: Some model year 2008 and 2009 vehicles
  • Saturn ION: All model year 2004 to 2007 vehicles
  • Pontiac G6: All model year 2005, and some model year 2006 and model year 2008 and 2009 vehicles
  • Service parts installed into certain vehicles before May 31, 2010 under a previous safety recall

“Depending on the vehicle, GM will replace free of charge either the power steering motor, the steering column, the power steering motor control unit or a combination of the steering column and the power steering motor control unit,” the company said in a release.

GM expects to take a $750 million charge in the first quarter on recall-related repairs, including February’s ignition switch recall.

    How about recalling the 2004 trailblazer for power steering issues. I have had to replace the rack 2times now. Or how about the transmissions failing. (3rd gear is a known problem)
