Power steering failures can cause serious problems for vehicle occupants. According to a General Motors company bulletin, the following vehicles are prone to power steering failures during low speed turns: Chevrolet Avalanche, Tahoe, Suburban, and Silverado Classic; GMC Sierra Classic and Yukon; Cadillac Escalade; and Hummer H2. It appears that GM considers this a “normal characteristic” of these vehicles. The problem is a result of a lack of pressure in the power steering system. It can be triggered by low tire pressure and worn or over-sized tires. Folks have been complaining about the problem since 1999, saying that the problem makes it difficult to navigate in tight spots. But for some reason NHTSA says this issue does not rise to the level of a safety threat.
