GM says it is aware of 30 different accidents related to this condition and two injuries.

The problem is electric power steering that can be lost momentarily and then return suddenly, increasing the risk of a collision.

To fix the problem, GM dealers will update the EPS module software free of charge. A schedule of when the recall will begin has not yet been announced.

This GM recall comes on the heels of Ford announcing a massive recall for its trucks over fires started by seatbelt pretensioners.
