General Motors is recalling more than a million big pickup trucks and SUVs in the U.S. because of power steering problems that are blamed for a number of accidents.
GM says the power steering can fail during a voltage drop and suddenly return, especially during low-speed turns. Such a failure increases the risk of a crash. The company says it has 30 reports of crashes with two injuries, but no deaths. GM will update the power steering software. GM says the software update is available immediately.
