General Motors recalling roughly 800000 pickup trucks for steering defect

The recalled vehicles can briefly lose their power steering assist, said GM.

The largest U.S. automaker said the 2014 model year trucks could suffer a temporary loss of electric power steering, especially during low-speed turning maneuvers, according to documents disclosed Friday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Most of the vehicles were sold in the USA, but roughly 100,000 were sold in other markets.

The affected models are 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks, the NHTSA said in a safety recall report.
