California AA Accident Attorneys

General Motors has announced its latest recall on more than 67,000 sedan models over a potential power steering failure that could limit handling capabilities for drivers.

The recall covers the 2008 Saturn Aura and Chevrolet Malibu, Malibu Maxx, and Pontiac G6 models built in 2005, 2006, and 2008 in Canada over the potential for a sudden loss of power steering, which could inhibit normal handling capabilities for drivers who are unaware of the loss.

There is an audible chime announcing this loss of power steering, along with an illuminated warning light on the instrument panel, though such warnings offer no remedy to the situation.

GM is quick to point out that even in the event of a failure of the system drivers are still able to operate their vehicles, albeit with a little more effort required. Power steering systems are designed to ease the strain needed to perform a turn while behind the wheel. If this system fails, much greater force will be required to achieve such a turn.

According to a press release from GM and Transport Canada, which announced the recall, “Unless a driver compensates for this additional steering effort, loss of power steering assist may increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury.”

At this time GM has not released information about what may be causing the failure, though they are offering replacement steering columns to affected vehicles. 2008 year models will also receive a new power steering motor control module.

At this time the recall has only affected models sold in Canada, and it is unknown whether or not similar action will be required in the United States or Europe. An investigation into these models has been launched, and drivers of these vehicles should take note of the possibility of the issue.

With diminished handling capabilities, drivers can have a more limited ability to avoid oncoming dangers, leading to accidents. If you have been involved in an accident like this as a result of a faulty or defective vehicle component, there are legal options available to help you recover.

I’d never been in a car accident in my whole life.I had originally hired an attorney, and he had dropped my case. So I came to the Accident Attorneys and they took on my case. They were amazing. They did a really good job. And I didn’t have to handle anything. In the end I’m very satisfied with my settlement.

We found Accident Attorneys, and finding them was probably the best thing that happened to us right then, because we were very well taken care of. They came out to us. We didn’t have to go to them. We was very well compensated financially. If I had to recommend an attorney, I would recommend them.
