Report: Chevy Cobalt Being Investigated for Faulty Steering; Recall Possible


With the recall focus aimed squarely at Toyota these days, now would be a great time for an automaker to issue a recall and go unnoticed by the media. General Motors may be in just such a situation, as the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced it is investigating the Chevy Cobalt for faulty steering.

The NHTSA has decided to take action after receiving 1,132 complaints about a loss of power steering in Chevy Cobalt models from 2005-09, as well as the Cobalt SS model from 2008-09. In total, 11 of those cases have been related to crashes due to temporary loss of steering. The recall could affect as many as 905,000 vehicles.

The Cobalt is current in its last year of production as Chevy plans to replace it with the Cruze in 2011.
