ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

10/21/2014 - NASHVILLE, TN
I WAS STOPPED TO WAIT ON ONCOMING CARS TO PASS TO TURN LEFT ONTO A STREET. AS I WAS ABOUT TO TURN WITH MY CHILDERN IN THE CAR THE STEERING WHEEL LOCKED UP AND WOULD NOT TURN.IF, MY STEERING WHEEL WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN TURNED ALREADY, AS I WAS GETTING READY TO TURN, I WOULD HAVE BEEN HIT ON THE RIGHT SIDE WHERE MY CHILD WAS SITTING. I HAD NO OPTION BUT TO DRIVE UP ON THE CURB. THIS IS THE SAME SITUATION AS THE 2008 AND 2009 MODEL MALIBU'S WHICH HAVE A RECALL ON THEM FOR STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM GM'S RECALL #14V15300 RECALLED 3/31/14. OBVIOUSLY THIS RECALL NEEDS TO BE ADDED TO THE 2010 MODEL SINCE IT IS STILL OCCURING. I TOOK MY CAR TO THE FREELAND CHEV. WHERE THEY HAD TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE STEERING COLUMN DUE TO THE BAD TORQUE SENSOR. THIS COSTED ME 689.00 TO REPLACE, I FEEL GM SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS AND ADD THE 2010 MODEL MALIBU TO THE RECALL LIST SO THAT I CAN BE REIMBURSED FOR THEIR ERROR AND SO THEIR CUSTOMERS THAT PUT TRUST IN PURCHASING THEIR VEHICLES ARE SAFE. TO NOTE I HAVE CONTACTED AND SPOKE WITH SEVERAL REPS AT GM NONE OF WHICH OFFERED ANY TYPE OF HELP WITH THIS MATTER.
