    DETROIT (Reuters) - General Motors Corp. (NYSE:GM - news) said on Monday it was recalling about 824,000 cars built from January 1996 through October 1997 to fix a possible power steering problem.

    Some 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix and Oldsmobile Cutlass Supremes and 1997-98 Buick Regal cars were also affected, GM said.

    It said about 750,000 of the vehicles subject to the recall were in the United States while most of the remainder were sold in Canada.

    In some of the vehicles a lower pinion bearing in the power steering gear may separate, causing the driver to experience an intermittent loss of power steering assist or unintended power assist, according to GM.

    A little late to recall don't ya think? Scary
