General Motors (GM) Corporation announced on Friday, August 12, 2011, that 16,198 units of Chevrolet Impala and Buick LaCrosse cars were being recalled in the United States and Canada to deal with sensor and power steering difficulties as reported by several international news sites that day.

In line with this, 11,905 units of 2012 Chevrolet Impala would be examined for correct installation of the power steering hose. As explained by the company, if in case the hose is misrouted, it could have leaked and fluid will spurt onto hot engine parts which can lead to a fire.

Among the mentioned quantity of Chevrolet Impala being recalled, 10,334 of them are in the United States while the rest are in Canada.

The automaker reportedly found the deficiency during production at the plant in Oshawa, Ontario where the car was built. Hence, GM told that dealers will change the hose including protection from abrasion if it is installed incorrectly.

Meanwhile, 4,293 units of 2012 Buick LaCrosse were recalled by GM to correct the program of electronic brake control due to inaccurate calibration, which 4,077 of them are in the United States and others are in Canada.

The company told reports that the electronic stability system may not function well in identifying sensor failure to shed a warning light. In result, it would give trouble to the driver in sustaining the car’s driving path and speed. To solve the issue, dealers would have to restore the module’s program.
