GM has recalled 2,149 vehicles that may have been assembled with an incorrect steering knuckle on one or both sides. As a result, the tie rod ball stud could pull out of or fracture the tie rod housing, causing it to separate from the steering knuckle. If this happens, loss of steering ability can occur, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the steering knuckle and replace the knuckle and tie rod as necessary. This recall is expected to begin by December 8, 2008. The General Motors recall number is 08389.

The power steering line connected to the power steering pump may have a nut that has loosened, possibly causing a power steering fluid leak. If the fluid contacts the hot exhaust components, a fire could start. Dealers will inspect the nut and tighten it. If a fluid leak is found, the fluid level will also be checked. The recall began September 26, 2008. The GM recall number is 08284.
