GM to recall 1.3M compacts for steering problem

DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors says it is recalling 1.3 million compact cars in the U.S., Canada and Mexico to fix power steering motors that can fail.

Models covered by the recall include 2005 to 2010 Chevrolet Cobalts, the 2007 to 2010 Pontiac G5s, 2005 and 2006 Pontiac Pursuits sold in Canada and 2005 and 2006 Pontiac G4s sold in Mexico.

GM says the vehicles are safe to drive and never lose steering, but they may be harder to steer when traveling under 15 mph.

The automaker is getting parts to replace the electric power steering motor and will notify customers when to bring their cars to dealers
