General Motors is recalling 690,685 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks because they might temporarily lose electric power steering assist, especially during low-speed turning maneuvers, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
“If EPS assist is lost and then returns, the driver might lose temporary control of the steering wheel, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA warned on its website.
GM dealers will update the EPS module software, free of charge. Vehicle owners can reach Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 or GMC customer service at (800) 432-8782. GM's number for this recall is 17276.
