Complaint - Steering

ON MANY LATE MODEL CHEVROLET AND GM CARS, THERE IS A CLUNKING ISSUE ON THE INTERMEDIATE STEERING SHAFTS. I HAVE TAKEN MINE TO THE DEALER AND AT THAT TIME THE FIX WAS TO REPACK THE SHAFT WITH GREASE OR PUT A NEW ONE ON. THIS FI IS AT THE OWNERS EXPENSE. GM AND CHEVROLET ARE VERY EXPERIENCED WITH THIS ISSUE AS DOING AN INTERNET SEARCH WILL BRING UP MANY ARTICLES. THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO REDESIGN OF THIS COMPONENT. THIS COMPONENT IS NOT EVEN A SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE ITEM. THE FACT THAT THERE ARE DESIGN ITERATIONS BUT STILL NO RECALL IS LUDICROUS. IF MY OWNERS MANUAL SAID GREASE THE STEERING SHAFT EVERY 10000 MILES, I CAN UNDERSTAND NO RECALL. BUT CHEVY HAS NEVER STATED IT TO BE A MAINTENANCE ITEM AND THE FACT THERE ARE REDESIGNS SAYS THERE IS AND ISSUE THAT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AFTER.
