Last year, the 2016 Chevrolet SS was hit with a summer-long stop sale by General Motors as the automaker worked to remedy a seatbelt tensioner recall. Now, the already-discontinued Chevrolet SS performance sedan is in for another recall and associated stop-sale.
Specifically, the recall is for power steering failure in 2014-2016 Chevrolet SS sedans. To note, it does not apply to the 2017 model year of SS sedan.
The 2014-2016 SS may experience loss of electric power steering at idle or while driving, which will result in the need for extra input from the driver suddenly. Though manual functionality is retained, but it may increase the risk of a crash. Corrosion between the EPS module and torque sensor are to blame.
Many SS owners have already experienced the power steering failure and have had the vehicles fixed under warranty.
Currently, GM is in the process of sorting through which vehicles will be recalled and a remedy is not yet available. The automaker will notify dealers when the proper replacement parts are and sufficient quantities are available to begin repairing the cars.
Update: here are the complete details surrounding the Chevy SS power steering recall.
