General Motors announced a recall of 1.3 million cars in North America due to power steering problems. NHTSA had begun an investigation at the end of January after receiving 1,100 complaints that vehicles were losing power steering assist. These complaints included 14 crashes and one injury. GM attributes the problem to unexpected failures of the power steering motor after 20,000 to 30,000 miles of driving. The recall includes 2005-2010 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007-2010 Pontiac G5 sold in the US, 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit sold in Canada, and 2005-2006 Pontiac G4 sold in Mexico.
