General Motors is recalling 70,200 Chevrolet Aveo cars in Russia due to potential steering problems in extremely cold temperatures, Russian federal regulatory agency Rosstandart said Monday.
The agency said the recall concerned vehicles sold between November 2011 and last month.
Tests have shown the cars' hydraulic assisted steering system could develop cracks in temperatures below minus 40 Celsius (-40 Fahrenheit). Rosstandart said.
GM is still digesting a $900 million fine imposed last month in the United States for the recall last year of 2.6 million cars with faulty ignitions worldwide.
The problem was linked to at least 124 deaths, US officials found.
