Recall Alert: 2012 Chevrolet Express and Suburban, 2012 GMC Savana and Yukon XL

GM is recalling 6,159 model-year 2012 versions of the Chevrolet Express, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Savana and GMC Yukon XL heavy-duty vans and SUVs, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles use a faulty steering gear pitman shaft. It may not have been adequately hardened in the manufacturing process and could lead to a loss of steering. "There are no reports of crash, injury or property damage; component testing suggests that a fatigue failure due to this condition would not occur for at least five months in service for the most severe usage," NHTSA said in a statement.

GM will notify owners starting April 4, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
