A grand total of 67,414 sedans are being recalled by GM including the Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx (2005, 2006, 2008), Pontiac G6 (2005, 2006, 2008), and Saturn Aura (2008).

The electric power steering may experience a sudden loss of steering assist that could occur at any time while driving. A message would be displayed on the Driver Information Centre and a chime would sound to inform the driver.

Steering control can be maintained, as the vehicle will revert to a manual steering mode, but requires greater driver effort at low speeds. This increases the risk of a collision.

Owners are advised to take their vehicle to a GM dealer to receive a special extended warranty coverage for a period of 10 years/240,000 km from the date the vehicle was originally put in service.

For 2005 and 2006 models, dealers will replace the steering column. For 2008 models, they will replace the power steering motor control module.
