In February 2015, General Motors issued a power steering recall that targeted 81,000 vehicles. The electronic power steering system in these vehicles, which included the Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Cobalt, and Pontiac G6, unexpectedly failed, resulting in drivers experiencing great difficulty in steering the vehicles.
The vehicles that were part of the February 2015 recall are:
Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
According to a New York Times article on the GM power steering recall, the car manufacturer attempted to discreetly address the power steering defect.
GM didn’t make any public announcement about the power steering problem, even though they were aware of the defect. Instead, the car manufacturer notified dealers of how to fix the power steering defect, but only if car owners complained.
It wasn’t until the power steering complaints grew to such a number that GM finally made the decision to issue a power steering recall.
