WHILE DRIVING ABOUT 30 MPH ON CITY STREET, CHIME RANG AND POWER STEERING CUT OUT. CAR WAS STILL STEERABLE WITHOUT POWER ASSIST, BUT BECAME MUCH MORE DIFFICULT AT LOW SPEEDS. SUDDEN MANUVER AT SLOWER SPEED WOULD BE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. POWER STEERING CAME BACK ON NEXT TIME I STARTED THE CAR, BUT CUT OUT AGAIN AFTER A SHORT TIME. I AM AWARE THAT THERE ARE RECALLS FOR THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM WITH THE PREVIOUS FOUR MODEL YEARS OF THE SAME SERIES OF CHEVROLET MALIBUS. THE MILAGE ON THE CAR IS ABOUT 48,000. CLEARLY, THE 2010 MALIBU NEEDS TO BE RECALLED AS WELL.
