COPY-Newest GM recall has Saginaw County connection

DETROIT (AP) - General Motors is recalling more than 6,000 big vans and SUVs because their steering can fail. The recall affects certain 2012 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans, and Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL SUVs. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website Saturday that a gear shaft can break, causing a loss of steering. GM says no crashes or injuries have been reported. The condition was discovered by GM's supplier Nexteer during testing of steering gear units. Nexteer Automotive is headquartered in Saginaw County's Buena Vista Township. GM says failure won't happen until the vehicles have been in service for at least 5 months under severe use. The vans carry up to 15 passengers and are used widely by churches and airport shuttle services. GM dealers will inspect the steering gear shaft and replace it if necessary.
