GM Recalls 1.3 Million Compact Cars

GM is recalling 1.3 million cars because of faulty power steering. MarketWatch has more:

The recall covers 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalts and 2007-2010 Pontiac G5s sold in the U.S., as well as 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuits sold in Canada, and 2005-2006 Pontiac G4s sold in Mexico, reports said, citing a GM statement.

The auto maker was cited as saying the power-steering assist in those models can sometimes fail, but added the cars are safe to drive but can be difficult to steer when traveling less than 15 miles per hour.

The problem sparked a Jan. 27 investigation by U.S. safety officials, after complaints which included 14 crashes and one injury, the reports said.

Does anyone make a car anymore that runs without recall-scale problems?
