DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors is issuing a recall for over 1.5-million vehicles for power steering problems.

Monday, the automaker said power steering assist may go out and revert to manual steering, which means drivers will have to use more effort to control the vehicle. GM officials say some injuries and crashes, but no deaths, have been reported because of the problem.

The recall covers vehicles including Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Ion and Pontiac G6 over several model years. This year GM has recalled more than 6.3-million vehicles, including nearly 2.6-million due to ignition switch issues.
