General Motors issued a recall Thursday of more than one 1 million full-size trucks and sport-utility vehicles for a steering defect that could cause drivers to lose control.

This is especially true at low speeds and increases the risk of a crash.

The recall covers certain examples of 2018 and 2019 model year Buick LaCrosse sedans, Cadillac XTS sedans, Chevrolet Cruze, Impala, and Malibu sedans, Chevrolet Bolt EV electric cars, and GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox crossover SUVs.

In 2014, the No.1 US automaker had recalled almost 800,000 pickup trucks worldwide because of the same problem.

The recall campaign hasn't officially begun, so don't rush to call your dealer and set up an appointment to get it fixed just yet.

More than 1 million of the trucks are in the USA, and most of the rest are in Canada and Mexico.

GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson said the automaker has received reports of 30 crashes and two injuries, but no deaths linked to the recall. GM said that about 210,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold new in the US, while the others were delivered to Canada. Once the gas is out GM says the problem won't happen again. The updated software is available now, so customers can contact their dealers for repairs, said spokesman Tom Wilkinson.
