General Motors (GM) has announced a recall affecting certain model year 2017 Buick LaCrosse vehicles.

The electrical connectors for the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) system on the affected vehicles may not be properly sealed. As a result, water may enter and corrode the connectors possibly resulting in a loss of power steering.

A loss of power steering may result in increased manual steering effort, increasing the risk of a crash.

Approximately 2,085 Buick LaCrosse vehicles are impacted by this recall.

GM will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local Buick dealers will correct the seal seating and secure the EPS connector seals free of charge.
