Chevy issued the recall due to corrosion in the electric power steering and torque sensor of the vehicles.

Chevrolet just issued a new recall. According to the automaker they will be recalling 6,280 examples of the Caprice Police Pursuit Vehicle. The Police production vehicle models from 2014-2016 are being recalled.

The Police vehicles were produced from May 15, 2013 to March 3, 2016. The recall has been issued due to a corrosion problem. Chevy found corrosion in the electric power steering module and the torque sensor connector of the vehicles.

The corrosion can cause the sedans to lose electric power steering assist. The problem was brought to the attention of the Chevrolet by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The department of Police in LaGrange, IL, first reported losing power steering in the Caprice. The problem was identified back in September 2015 and led to an investigation.

According to AutoBlog, the investigation found that the dielectric grease on the torque sensor harness didn't offer enough protection. The parts need to be replaced with new gold-plated terminals to prevent the problem.

According to Chevrolet so far no injuries or deaths have been reported related to the issue. The problem can be fixed by replacing the steering gear assembly.

Official Chevrolet dealers will replace the system as part of the recall. According to Chevrolet the recall starting date has not been decided yet but will be announced soon.
