GM Canada Voluntarily Recalls 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt & Pontiac G5/Pursuit
to Fix Power Steering Assist

    Safety Recall Covers 256,583 Cars in Canada

    -  2005 - 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt
    -  2007 - 2010 Pontiac G5
    -  2005 - 2006 Pontiac Pursuit

OSHAWA, ON, March 2 /CNW/ - General Motors of Canada will conduct a safety recall of 256,583 compact cars to address issues in the power steering system. Vehicles affected are the 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt; 2007-2010 Pontiac G5; and 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit.

GM Canada told Transport Canada today about the voluntary recall after an investigation was concluded which revealed that greater steering effort under 24 kph may be required. While these vehicles are safe to drive because the drivers can still steer the vehicle, this measure is being taken out of concern for our customers.

If the condition happens to occur, both a chime will sound and a 'Power Steering' message will be displayed. The condition takes time to develop and tends to occur in older models out of warranty.

Plans for the remedy are being developed. Customers will be notified when the plan is finalized.
