The pickups may temporarily lose electric power steering assist while taking low speed turns which may result

The company says the vehicles can temporarily lose electric power steering assist, especially during low-speed turns which might make the operator lose steering control.

The recall affects trucks from the 2014 model year. Most of the vehicles were sold in the U.S., but roughly 100,000 were sold in other markets.

GM will notify owners about the recall. Dealers will update the electric power steering software for free.
