CNN Money -- General Motors issued a new recall Monday affecting 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S. for a sudden loss of power steering.

Although Monday's recall is the result of a separate issue, some of the affected cars overlap, including the Saturn Ion, Chevrolet HHR, and the Cobalt.

The loss of power steering issue affects some 2004 - 2010 Chevrolet Malibu, Malibu Maxx, Saturn Aura, and Pontiac G6 models.

GM said that some of these cars had been recalled before for the same issue. But Jeff Boyer, GM's newly appointed vice president of global vehicle safety, said they were asking drivers to bring them in again because, "we did not do enough."

Repairs for vehicles included in both the power steering and ignition switch recalls may require separate dealership visits, depending on parts availability.
