Complaint - Steering, Suspension

THE POWER STEERING GOES OUT A FEW TIMES EACH WEEK ON THIS 2005 MALIBU WITH THE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING. IT STARTED HAPPENING ONLY OCCASIONALLY, BUT NOW MUCH MORE FREQUENTLY. I RESET IT BY TURNING OFF ENGINE AND RESTARTING WHEN I AM ABLE TO STOP. IT USUALLY HAPPENS FAIRLY SOON AFTER STARTING WHEN COLD. SOMETIMES IT TAKES 2 OR 3 RESTARTS TO KEEP IT WORKING. IN ADDITION, THE PROBLEMS THAT MANY OTHERS ARE EXPERIENCING ARE ALSO PRESENT... LIKE THE DRIFT AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS, AND THE CLUNKING SOUNDS IN THE FRONT END. SO FAR, THE DEALER HAS NOT BEEN HELPFUL. THEY JUST WANT TO REPLACE PARTS AND CHARGE AROUND $800 TO REPAIR. THIS IS DEFINITELY A SAFETY ISSUE ON THE MALIBU AS WELL AS OTHER MODELS (LIKE THE COBALT) WHICH ALREADY HAVE RECALLS ISSUED FOR THESE PARTS.
