Government motors having trouble.

General Motors on Monday recalled another 1.3 million cars on the eve of hearings on Capitol Hill that are expected to be contentious.
The new recalls involve mid-to-late 2000’s model GM cars that have faulty power steering mechanisms, the company said.
“If power steering assist is lost, a message displays on the Driver Information Center and a chime sounds to inform the driver,” GM said in a statement announcing the latest recall. “Steering control can be maintained because the vehicle will revert to manual steering, but greater driver effort would be required at low vehicle speeds, which could increase the risk of a crash.”
The models that are affected include 2004-2009 Chevrolet Malibus, 2004-2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxxes, 2009-2010 Chevrolet HHRs, 2010 Chevrolet Cobalts, 2008-2009 Saturn Auras, 2004-2007 Saturn IONs, 2005-2009 Pontiac G6’s.
The additional recalls come as GM was already facing criticism from lawmakers in the House and Senate about its earlier warning about 1.6 millions that were having problems with their ignition switches.
