General Motors has recalled almost 700,000 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500s and 2014 GMC Sierra 1500s for a steering defect following a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation (NHTSA # 17V414000). The steering defect can cause a potentially dangerous problem driving and turning.
These trucks’ power steering assist (“EPS”) can cut out, especially during low speed turns, and then return suddenly. This may result in a loss of control of the vehicle. Additional symptoms of the problem may include other electrical systems cutting out and warning light indicators going off.
According to GM the underlying problem is a defect in the EPS module software, which needs to be reprogrammed.
