GM launches Buick Regal recall to replace steering system

February 29, 2016

General Motors has issued a small-batch recall for the 2016 Buick Regal to fix a problem with the steering system.

The company warns that the electric power-steering system is prone to failure, causing the vehicle to lose power-steering assist.

“If power-steering assist is lost, steering control can still be maintained but will require increased steering effort, particularly at lower speeds, which could increase the risk of a crash,” the recall documents add.

Additional details remain unclear, though the problem is serious enough to require complete replacement of the entire electric belt-drive rack and pinion steering gear assembly.

The issue affects just 74 units produced from late August 2015 through early February this year.
