General Motors is recalling more than 98,000 pickups, vans and SUVs for a potential problem
with their power steering and braking systems, according to the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA).
An advisory on the NHTSA Web site says the problem, which
can reduce but not eliminate the ability to stop or steer, comes from fractures in their
hydraulic pump driveshafts.
Vehicles affected by the recall are from the 2000 model year
and include Chevrolet C/K and Silverado pickups, and Suburban SUVs. GMC Savana vans are
affected, along with GMC Sierra pickups and Yukon XL SUVs.
General Motors recalled some 11
million vehicles in 2004.
