General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Chevrolet Caprice Police Pursuit vehicles (PPV).

The connector between the electric power steering module and the torque sensor may fail, possibly resulting in a loss of electric power steering assist.

A greater steering effort would be needed to control the vehicle if power steering assist is lost—especially at lower speeds. If this occurs, there is an increased risk of a crash.

Approximately 545 Chevrolet Caprice Police Pursuit vehicles are impacted by this recall.

GM will notify owners of the recalled vehicles. Dealers will then inspect the steering gear assembly, replacing it as necessary, free of charge.

GM has not yet provided a specific schedule for the remedy of this recall. Vehicle owners with additional questions can contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020.
