General Motors recalls certain model year 2014 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured November 5, 2012, to December 20, 2013. Due to a poor electrical ground connection to the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM), the affected vehicles may have a loss of power steering assist during start up or while driving.
If power steering assist is lost, greater driver effort would be required to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
Approximately 57,000 vehicles are affected by the recall.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will clean paint from behind the ground stud nut and update the PSCM software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late August 2014.
