General Motors is recalling 1.2 million big pickup trucks and SUVs mainly in North America because of power-assisted steering problems that have been cited in a number of accidents.

This is especially true at low speeds and increases the risk of a crash.

DETROIT (AP) - General Motors is recalling more than 240,000 vehicles, mainly in the USA and Canada, to fix a problem that could hamper rear brake performance.

GM reported that if EPS is lost and suddenly returns, the driver of the vehicle could have difficulty steering.

The recall covers certain examples of 2018 and 2019 model year Buick LaCrosse sedans, Cadillac XTS sedans, Chevrolet Cruze, Impala, and Malibu sedans, Chevrolet Bolt EV electric cars, and GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox crossover SUVs.

The automaker says dealers have been provided with updated software packages to deal with the problem.

The firm, which started investigating the issue in June after complaints, said the issue is linked to 30 crashes and two injuries but no deaths.

In 2017, GM had recalled here almost 800,000 pickup trucks worldwide because of the same problem.

At an unspecified date, dealers will replace the rear calipers and bleed the brake system to clear the lines of trapped gas. Download the 10News app now.
