General Motors is recalling roughly 800,000 pickup trucks worldwide due to potential steering issues.

The recall involves about 690,000 vehicles in the United States, 80,000 in Canada and about 25,000 in other markets.

GM is telling owners of the trucks involved in the recall to take vehicles to a dealer where they can receive a software update to fix the issue.

Drivers can check to see if their vehicle is among the recalled vehicles on NHTSA’s website.

Owners can also contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-800-432-8782.
