Steering issue prompts GM recall

SUNDAY, MARCH 25, 2012

DETROIT – General Motors is recalling more than 6,000 big vans and SUVs because their steering can fail.

The recall affects certain 2012 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans, and Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL SUVs.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website Saturday that a gear shaft can break, causing a loss of steering. GM says no crashes or injuries have been reported.

The problem was discovered in testing by the company that makes the gear shafts.

The vans carry up to 15 passengers and are used widely by churches and airport shuttle services.
