Complaint - Steering

UPON RETURNING FROM VACATION, WE RETRIEVED OUR 2006 CHEVROLET MALIBU FROM A FRIENDS HOUSE AND THE CAR BEEPED ONCE AND MY HUSBAND WAS LIKE "WHAT'S THAT", THEN I NOTICED IN THE MESSAGE CENTER AREA THAT IT WAS FLASHING POWER STEERING, WHICH IT HAD NEVER DONE BEFORE. NOW, EVERY TIME I GET INTO THE CAR, THE CAR BEEPS AND THE POWER STEERING MESSAGE COMES ON IN THE MESSAGE CENTER. I HAVE RESEARCHED THE ISSUE AND HAVE NOTICED THAT GM IS NOT ACCEPTING FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THESE DEFECTIVE STEERING COLUMNS/POWER STEERING MOTORS, ONLY THOSE SELECT FEW (COBALTS, ETC.)?? APPARENTLY QUITE A FEW ARE BEING RECALLED IN CANADA, BUT NOT IN THE U. S. AND IT ONLY LEADS ME TO THE QUESTION: WHY?? I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL MALIBU OWNER (THIS IS MY THIRD ONE) BUT IF GM IS NOT WILLING TO STEP UP AND ADMIT A SERIOUS SAFETY DEFECT, I MAY HAVE TO RETHINK MY CHOICE OF VEHICLE OWNERSHIP.
