GM discovers steering flaw, doesn't issue recall

Rate this Entry
GM is in the spotlight again for not issuing a recall after becoming aware of a safety issue. 50 GM vehicle owners have complained of their steering wheel seizing up while driving. GM looked into the issue and found that the occurrence was so rare, it didn't warrant a recall. This time, GM has the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on their side. It seems the issue only occurs when people drive a long distance without turning the wheel at all and then the steering becomes slightly more stiff. Though GM isn't issuing a recall, drivers can bring it in for a software update free of charge.
