TL CONTACT OWNS A 2005 CHEVROLET MALIBU. WHEN TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL, THE CONTACT HEARD A POPPING SOUND. THE FAILURE BEGAN SIX MONTHS AGO AND NOW IT IS CAUSING THE POWER STEERING TO FAIL. THE FAILURE WAS VERY SUBTLE AT FIRST, BUT NOW THE POWER STEERING FAILS FOR DAYS AT A TIME. THE AIR CONDITIONING WOULD ACTIVATE ON AND OFF, BUT NOW IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. THE DEALER STATED THAT THE POWER STEERING MODULE AND AIR CONDITIONING RESISTOR NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE CONTACT ALSO STATED THAT THE CONTROL PANEL IS WARM TO THE TOUCH AFTER DRIVING FOR SOME TIME. THE VEHICLE IS CURRENTLY WITH THE DEALER AND THE REPAIR WILL COST OVER $900. THE CURRENT MILEAGE WAS 70,000 AND FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 50,000. UPDATED 09/10/08. THE CONSUMER STATED THE SHOCKS WENT BAD, THE TIE ROD ENDS HAD TO BE REPLACED, THE CD BECAME STUCK IN THE CD PLAYER. THE REAR CALIPERS HAD TO BE REPLACED AND THE STARTER WORKED INTERMITTENTLY. UPDATED 09/12/08.
