Complaint - Steering

I WAS JUST BACKING UP AT CHURCH AND THE DINGING NOISE CAME ON LIKE WHEN YOUR CAR DOOR IS OPEN. I LOOK AT THE INFORMATION ON THE SCREEN AND IT SAYS POWER STEERING. I COULD NOT TURN MY CAR WITHOUT USING 2 HANDS TO DO IT. I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE IT HOME (2 BLOCKS). AFTER LOOKING UP THE PROBLEM ONLINE AND SEEING SO MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE SAME PROBLEM AND SUGGESTING I TURN OFF THE CAR AND TURN IT BACK ON, I WENT OUT TO TRY IT AND IT WORKED. IT'S AS IF I HAD NO PROBLEM AT ALL. I WENT AROUND THE BLOCK AND DIDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM, BUT WHAT IF I'M ON THE HIGHWAY AND IT DOES IT AGAIN. I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL PROBLEMS WITH MY FRONT END. LEFT FRONT LOWER BALL JOINT AND BOTH STABILIZER END LINKS LOOSE, REPLACED CONTROL ARM, AXLE FALLING OFF, SHAFT, YOU NAME IT. AND I DON'T ABUSE MY CAR. JUST WANT TO ADD YET ANOTHER COMPLAINT TO THE REST. AND YES, THIS WILL BE MY LAST CHEVY. WE ARE NOW DEPENDING ON OUR 1997 FORD RANGER WITH 212,000 MILES ON IT. MY CHEVY HAS 85,000. TO SAY THE LEAST, I DON'T FEEL SAFE DRIVING THIS CAR ANYMORE. I ALWAYS FEEL LIKE I'M JUST MINUTES AWAY FROM SOMETHING GOING WRONG WITH THE FRONT END. I FEEL LIKE I NEED A SAFETY INSPECTION EVERY MONTH.
