General Motors has announced it will recall 1.3 million cars in North America over a potentially faulty power steering motor following a federal probe into the problem in January.

The recall would cover 2005 — through 2010 — model year Chevrolet Cobalts and 2007-2010 Pontiac G5s, along with similar models in Canada and Mexico, the top US auto maker said in a statement.

Complaints had been filed about power steering failures that could make the vehicles difficult to control.

“After our in-depth investigation, we found that this is a condition that takes time to develop. It tends to occur in older models out of warranty,” Jamie Hresko, vice-president, quality, GM, said in the statement on Tuesday.
