GM recalling about 700000 Chevy and GMC pickup trucks due to steering issue – Sacramento Bee

GM is recalling thousands of Chevrolet and GMC pickup trucks due to a possible software issue that affects steering.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silvarado LD and the GMC Sierra LD may have a software problem which causes them to lose electric steering assistance for about one second followed by a sudden return of the assistance, according to a document from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The models affected are more susceptible to the issue when performing low-speed turns, according to the NHTSA.

“If EPS assist is lost and then returns, the driver might lose temporary control of the steering wheel, increasing the risk of a crash,” a statement from the NHTSA read.

More than 690,000 vehicles are potentially affected, according to the NHTSA.
