General Motors Company has issued a recall of roughly 800,000 trucks worldwide due to a dangerous defect that could lead to unsafe driving conditions.

General Motors has reported that drivers may experience a temporary loss in their electric power steering assist, especially during low-speed turns. If that happens, the driver could possibly lose control of the steering wheel, possibly leading to a collision.

The vehicles in question involve Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups manufactured in the 2014 model year. According to Fox 13, most of the vehicles were sold in the United States; however, roughly 100,000 were sold in other markets.

General Motors has said that they will notify owners about the recall, and that dealers will update the electric power steering software for free.
