Complaint - Steering

I WAS DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY AT 65 MPH WHEN THE POWER STEERING INDICATOR CAME ON WITH FOUR BELL TONES - I LOST THE ABILITY TO EASILY STEER THE CAR. I HAD TO STRUGGLE TO GET THE CAR STEERED OFF THE FREEWAY. I TURNED THE CAR OFF THEN ON AND POWER STEERING RESUMED. I GOT BACK ON THE FREEWAY AND WITHIN 15 MINUTES THE PROBLEM OCCURRED AGAIN AND I HAD TO STRUGGLE JUST TO STEER. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION AS IF THE POWER STEERING TOTALLY LOCKS UP IT CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. THE POWER STEERING ON THE 2006 CHEVROLET MALIBU IS ELECTRONIC AND ITS THE SAME PROBLEM THAT THE 2004 VERSION WAS RECALLED FOR PER MY MECHANIC.
