How do we know if our G6 is apart of this recall?

you should receive a letter from GM or your GM dealer if you bought it from one.. It will be addressed to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Be patient.. letters should arrive in the next few weeks.

Well I have an 06 G6 GTP - so in the recall it says only some 06 models. Couldn't find any information more specific, so I called my GM dealer. They had no clue what I was talking about but checked my VIN anyways - didn't find anything. So it looks like the GTP isnt part of the recall. But I will wait a week or 2 and double check - the information relayed from GM may be delayed or something.

I bought my 2008 used. Maybe it's the vehicles with electronic steering.

again.. ONLY CARS WITH ELECTRIC POWER STEERING WILL BE INVOLVED

If you can look under your hood, and you have a power steering reservoir.. you will not be included.. if you don't know what your looking for, wait until the letters arrive, or the dealership network has more than 24hrs to learn about this.

This recall announcement was made YESTERDAY, so there will be a very normal delay before the dealership networks begin to be instructed on how to handle the recall. Give the guys a chance to know something before you guys start making phone calls asking questions they can't answer yet. It'll save you some time, and allow them to service the customers they have in shop already.

ALSO, please read the GM Press Release for all the information that has been provided. It it in the very FIRST post, and describes what the problem is.

I did read the press release, I do not see anywhere where it says it is limited to cars with electric power steering. It makes sense what you're saying, but what is your source?

If your post was referring to mine, then I know it was made yesterday and called just to check to see if they knew anything, and simply said I would try again in a week or 2. So, I am giving them the chance and I know there may be a delay with information transfer etc. totally reasonable and understandable. If you were not referring to my post then you may disregard the latter half. But still, how do you know it is electronic power steering?

I was actually not referring to your post about calling, it just reminded me to say something about it.


The source I have is the original recall and the opening statement of the new press release.

"DETROIT – General Motors informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today that it would recall more than 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S. that may experience a sudden loss of electric power steering assist."

Electric Power Steering Assist is the electric steering rack. A "Hydraulic Power Steering Assist" recall would be issued for the hydraulic units.
