Another day, and another recall at General Motors.

The car company is calling back 1.3 million vehicles in the US, because they may experience a sudden loss of electric power steering assist.

Steering control would be maintained because the vehicle would revert to manual steering, but it would require more effort to manouver, especially at low speeds. That could increase the risk of a crash.

The models subject to the recall include:

- Chevrolet Malibu - 2004 and 2005 and some 2006 models along with 2008 and 2009.
- Chevrolet Malibu Maxx - All model year 2004 and 2005 and some 2006 models.
- Chevrolet HHR (Non-Turbo) - some 2009 and 2010 model years.
- Chevrolet Cobalt - some model year 2010.
- Saturn Aura - some model year 2008 and 2009.
- Saturn ION - all models 2004 to 2007.
- Pontiac G6 - all 2005, some model year 2006, and 2008 and 2009.

Depending on the vehicle, GM will replace either the power steering motor, the steering column, the power steering motor control unit or a combination of the steering column and the power steering motor control unit at no charge.

GM Canada tells Newstalk1010, 145,700 vehicles in Canada are included in the recall.
