STEERING

11/20/2014 - PLYMOUTH , MI
MY 2010 CHEVY MALIBU LOSES POWER STEERING AT LOW RATES OF SPEED WHEN THE STEERING WHEEL IS MOVED IN EITHER DIRECTION. THIS HAS PUT MY FAMILY IN DANGERS WAY ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS. GM/CHEVY RECENTLY HAD A RECALL TO FIX THE ISSUE I AM HAVING HOWEVER THEY WILL NOT COVER THE 2010 MODEL UNDER THE RECALL. THE 2008-2012 MODELS OF THE CHEVY MALIBU USE THE SAME ELECTRONIC STEERING PARTS HOWEVER GM FEELS THEY ONLY NEED TO RECALL THE 2008 AND 2009 MODELS. THIS IS URGENT THAT THIS BE ADDRESSED WITH GM AND IS A MATTER OF PUBLIC SAFETY. I ALSO WILL BE WRITING MY LOCAL AND STATE REGULATORS IN THE HOPES THAT THIS MAY SAVE LIVES AND DOCUMENT MY COMPLAINTS. PLEASE SEE GM RECALL BELOW. AGAIN THIS DOES NOT COVER THE 2010 MODEL EVEN THOUGH IT USES THE SAME PARTS! THIS HAS BEEN INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED BY 2 CERTIFIED GM MECHANICS AS WELL AS 2 LOCAL MECHANICS. IF WE LOSE ONE MORE LIFE BECAUSE OF GM'S CARELESS ACTIONS THEN OUR SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK. I CAN BE REACH DIRECTLY BY EMAIL OR AT 734-812-6883. PLEASE HELP. IF POWER STEERING ASSIST IS LOST, A MESSAGE DISPLAYS ON THE DRIVER INFORMATION CENTER AND A CHIME SOUNDS TO INFORM THE DRIVER. STEERING CONTROL CAN BE MAINTAINED BECAUSE THE VEHICLE WILL REVERT TO MANUAL STEERING, BUT GREATER DRIVER EFFORT WOULD BE REQUIRED AT LOW VEHICLE SPEEDS, WHICH COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH. MODELS SUBJECT TO SAFETY RECALL ARE THE: CHEVROLET MALIBU: ALL MODEL YEAR 2004 AND 2005, AND SOME MODEL YEAR 2006 AND MODEL YEAR 2008 AND 2009 VEHICLES SERVICE PARTS INSTALLED INTO CERTAIN VEHICLES BEFORE MAY 31, 2010 UNDER A PREVIOUS SAFETY RECALL DEPENDING ON THE VEHICLE, GM WILL REPLACE FREE OF CHARGE EITHER THE POWER STEERING MOTOR, THE STEERING COLUMN, THE POWER STEERING MOTOR CONTROL UNIT OR A COMBINATION OF THE STEERING COLUMN AND THE POWER STEERING MOTOR CONTROL UNIT. .
