General Motors (GM) is preparing to issue its third recall of about 1.4 million vehicles with fire risks, as repairs conducted in the previous recalls failed to correct the issue that was being addressed.
According to reports, the two previous GM recalls of the same vehicles both failed to address the leaking oil issue that placed vehicles at risk of catching fire. About 1,300 vehicles that were repaired by dealers in previous recalls reportedly caught fire according to GM. So far, there have been 19 minor injuries reported as a result of related fires.

General Motors (GM) is recalling over 81,000 vehicles because of a power steering system that may fail, an article on syracuse.com stated February 14.
According to the automaker, drivers may experience problems in controlling the affected vehicles at slower speeds if the power steering malfunctions. If this problem occurs, drivers may notice a chime and will see a message appear on the vehicle’s information center. Though GM said they are aware of a crash involving a recalled vehicle, there were no reported incidents of deaths or injuries before they issued the recall. Dealers will install a new sensor to address the problem.
