NHTSA Investigating Saturn Ion Steering Defect

Saturn Ion Quad Coupe

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched an investigation to determine whether General Motors should have also recalled the Saturn Ion when it recalled the Chevrolet Cobalt for a power steering defect back in 2010. Michigan Live reports that the government agency has received "846 complaints about power steering problems in Saturn Ions from the 2004-2007 model years." The newspaper says a consumer group known as the National Legal and Policy Center believes the company needs to recall "all 382,474 Saturn Ions" built during those years. A GM spokeman declined to comment on the issue earlier today, but said the company is "trying to resolve its product reviews quickly and accurately."
