General Motors has decided that a defect relating to steering exists in certain Chevrolet , Pontiac, and Saturn vehicles. Vehicles that were repaired under safety recall 10023 (10V-037) are not included unless they were repaired prior to May 31, 2010. Vehicles that were repaired under special coverage bulletins 10183 and 10187 are not included as well.
The vehicles involved in the recall include:
- 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt
- 2009-2010 Chevrolet HHR
- 2004-2006, 2008-2009 Chevrolet Malibu
- 2004-2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
- 2005-2006, 2008-2009 Pontiac G6
- 2008-2009 Saturn Aura

The subject vehicles, equipped with electric power steering (EPS) may experience a sudden loss of power steering assist. If steering assist is lost, a message will be displayed on the driver information center and a chime will sound to inform the driver. Steering control will be maintained, but will require greater driver effort, especially at low speeds.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will perform one of four bulletins. Because parts are not currently available, GM will send an interim notification around April 28, 2014, and when parts become available, owners will be mailed a second letter to come in to have the applicable bulletin applied. Owners wanting more information about the problem can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, Saturn at 1-800-553-6000, and Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668. GM’s recall number is N140115 and the NHTSA campaign number is 14V-153.
