Complaint - Steering

1/24/2008 AND 2/27/2008 MY POWER STEERING SYSTEM FAILED. ONCE ENTERING A HIGHWAY AND ONCE ENTERING A BRIDGE; BOTH TIMES I NARROWLY ESCAPED ACCIDENT AND INJURY. T HE FIRST TIME I WAS TOWED TO BAST CHEVROLET IN SEAFORD NY (MY DEALER). BAST SAID THE PROBLEM WAS THE RETURN HOSE OF THE POWER STEERING PUMP, AND THAT THERE WAS A BULLETIN ON PROBLEMS WITH THIS PUMP. I WAS TOLD THE HOSE WAS REPLACED AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE. THE SECOND TIME AFTER BEING TOWED TO 2 DEALERS(THE FIRST SAID HE HAD NO TIME TO LOOK AT IT.) I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS THE RETURN HOSE ON THE POWER STEERING PUMP. WHEN I TOLD HIM IT HAD JUST BEEN REPLACED LAST MONTH, HE TOLD ME THE FIRST DEALER NEVER REPLACED IT; HE ONLY ADDED A CLAMP. THE FIRST DEALER WHEN CONTACTED REPEATED THAT THE HOSE WAS REPLACED BUT WHEN I TOLD HIM ABOUT THE SECOND DEALER HE CHANGED HIS STORY SAYING THE SECOND DEALER WAS RIGHT, AND THAT ONLY THE CLAMP WAS CHANGED. MY COPY OF THE REPAIR INVOICE SAYS THEY CHANGED THE HOSE.
