2017 Chevrolet Camaro included in the power steering recall

General Motors is recalling 26,772 cars, including certain 2016–2018 Cadillac CTS sedans, 2017 Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro coupes, and 2017 Cadillac ATS sedans.

The electric power-steering assist may fail while the vehicle is in motion. If power steering is lost, drivers may have to steer with more effort. If this happens unexpectedly, it may lead to a crash, especially at low speeds, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Drivers may also see a warning message on the dashboard if the power-steering assist fails. Power steering may start working again after the vehicle is turned off and restarted, but may fail again later, NHTSA says.

GM has already recalled over 1.7 million trucks and SUVs for power-steering issues in separate campaigns.
