GM has issued a recall for the 2008 and 2009 Saturn Vue because of a malfunction with the power steering, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall affects 42,408 vehicles that may have a faulty nut securing the power-steering line, which could lead to a fluid leak.
If the fluid comes into contact with hot exhaust components, it could result in a fire in the engine. If you own a 2008 or 2009 Saturn Vue, dealers will inspect the power-steering line, tighten the nut and check if a fluid leak has occurred.
Owners can contact Saturn at 800-972-8876, or the NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.
