GM recalls over 60K vehicles due to possible power steering malfunction

By Susan Engstrom

A faulty electrical connection may result in a loss of power steering assist.

General Motors, LLC (GM) is recalling about 60,678 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon vehicles because the power steering assist may be lost due to a poor electrical connection within the steering gear assembly. The company cautions that a loss of power steering, particularly at lower speeds, increases the risk of a crash (NHTSA Recall Notice, No. 21V213, Report receipt date: March 25, 2021).

Remedy. GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering gear torque sensor cover assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 10, 2021.

Contact information. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, and GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is N202325410. Owners also may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
