Dorman Products is recalling certain steering shafts that were sold for installation on 2004–2012 Chevrolet Malibu, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 and 2007-2009 Saturn Aura vehicles.

The affected steering shafts may have a yoke that inadequately supports the u-joint bearing resulting in premature failure. Subsequently, a driver could experience a complete loss of steering control. About 6,800 steering shafts are affected by the recall.

Dorman will notify owners, and dealers will refund the purchase price or replace the steering shafts, free of charge. Owners can contact Dorman customer service at (800) 523-2492.
