GM to Recall 1.3 Million Compacts for Steering Problems

DETROIT (AP) - General Motors says it will notify the owners of
1.3 million Chevrolet and Pontiac compacts that are being recalled
when the parts are available to fix power steering motors.

The recall affects 2005 to 2010 Chevrolet Cobalts, 2007 to 2010
Pontiac G5s, 2005 and 2006 Pontiac Pursuits sold in Canada and 2005 and 2006 Pontiac G4s sold in Mexico.

GM says the cars are still safe to drive and never lose their steering, but it may be harder to steer them when traveling under
15 mph.

It told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about
the recall yesterday. NHTSA (NIHT'-sah) says it started investigating the problem in late January after getting 1,100 complaints that the cars lost their power steering assist. The complaints included 14 crashes and one injury.
