STEERING

3/5/2018 - MIDWEST, OK
THE VEHICLE IS A 2008 CHEVY COBALT LT AND ONLY HAS 54400 MILEAGE. ELECTRIC POWER STEERING ASSIST MOTOR HAS STOPPED WORKING WHILE ON THE ROAD AT ABOUT 40 MPH. THIS PART WAS RECALLED IN 2010, WAS REPLACED AND HAS ALREADY QUIT WORKING. SEEMS THAT THESE MOTORS ARE NOT VERY DURABLE AND CAN BE DANGEROUS TO DRIVERS AS THEY CAN GO OUT AT ANYTIME EVEN GOING DOWN THE ROAD.
