More than a million pickup trucks and SUVs are being recalled by General Motors out of fear that the vehicles could have a sudden power steering loss. 

The 1,015,918 vehicles in the recall include 2015 models of the Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe, the GMC Sierra and Yukon, and the Cadillac Escalade.

"If EPS assist is lost and then suddenly returns, the driver may have difficulty steering the vehicle, especially at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash."

General Motors will inform owners of the issue and the fix will be provided free of charge by dealers. 

If you're worried that your 2015 model is affect, you can call Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 and GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782.
