NEW YORK (AP) - General Motors is recalling more than 81,000 vehicles because of problems that can cause power steering to fail.

The recall covers certain Chevrolet Malibu, Malibu Maxx and Pontiac G6 vehicles with power steering from the 2006 and 2007 model years.

GM says a message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center and a chime will sound if power steering is lost. It says drivers can still maintain control, but that requires greater effort at low speeds.

Nearly all the recalled vehicles are in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Dealers will replace a sensor assembly in the power steering. GM says the problem has caused one crash but no injuries or deaths.

The recall is an expansion of a recall from last year involving about 1.3 million vehicles.
