If you own a Corvette, Camaro or Cadillac ATS or CTS, you may be one of the 26,772 owners getting a letter from GM letting you know that the power steering may stop working without notice.
At only 26,772 cars, this is a small recall, but it does effect some of the best performance cars GM has produced. The recall addresses a problem with their power steering system, and disables all power assist steering. If you are driving at speed, you still can drive just fine but it will require more effort than usual to steer. If you are parallel parking, or making a low speed turn, the steering will become very difficult.
Fixing the problem is not difficult, but will require replacing the Bosch supplied power-steering gear assembly, which dealers will begin performing later this month once the necessary components are available!

What Mike likes about this car: “I’ve been selling these exotic Indy style Prowlers since they first came out in 1997. I recall they also came with the trailer back then in the matching color. I fell in love with them because they were so unusual and retro back to the 1932 era. Purple was the original color and I feel it looks best on this car. This is a fun weekend car that you can feel the wind blowing through your hair unless you’re bald like me!”
Prowler Purple with Slate interior and automatic transmission.
This local example is in excellent condition throughout with only 16,750 miles! It’s fully equipped and is optioned with chrome wheels.
One of the most striking design features of the Prowler are the open, Indy racer-style front wheels. The Prowler featured a powertrain from Chrysler’s LH-cars; a 24-valve, 3.5 L SOHC V6 engine producing 253hp at 5850 rpm.
This F.I. unit was taken off of a ’57 Corvette engine. It has been completely rebuilt and is ready to be installed. What is needed is the distributor and air cleaner unit (not included). The numbers are as follows: Serial # 2102. Part #7014520. Air Meter #7014521A. Fuel Meter #7014522 which is a mid-1957 fitment for either a 250hp or 283hp engine. Price: $8,500 $5,350
