FOR AWHILE NOW MY POWER STEERING INDICATOR HAS BEEN GOING OFF AND A FEW MONTHS AGO IT HAD BECOME AN ISSUE WHEN I VEERED OFF THE ROAD ON A U-TURN. I BROUGHT IT TO MY LOCAL CHEVROLET DEALERSHIP AND THEY TOLD ME NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH MY CAR AND THAT ID BE FINE. FEW WEEKS AGO I HAD ANOTHER INCIDENT TO WHERE I WAS BACKING INTO A SPOT AND COULDN'T TURN MY WHEEL AND ALMOST HIT THE CAR BEHIND ME. THE CHIME GOES OFF 2-3 TIMES A WEEK AND HAVE TROUBLE STARTING MY CAR SOMETIMES AD WELL. BEING CONCERNED I HAD DONE SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT THAT THERE IS A RECALL ON MY 2005 CHEVROLET MALIBU. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED GM AND THEY TOOK INFO FROM ME AND LEFT MESSAGE FOR CHEVY TO CALL ME. CHEVY NEVER CALLED ME BACK SO I CALLED AND THEY BEGAN TO TELL ME THE PARTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE TO REMEDY THE PROBLEM AND THE CAR IS ON A WAITING LIST. I IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO DO MORE RESEARCH AND CAME UP EMPTY. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW GM CAN LEAVE ME IN THIS SITUATION. I DON'T KNOW IF BECAUSE MY CAR IS ALMOST AT THE 10 YEAR MARK AND THAN GM IS NOT LIABLE, OR THERE IS A LOOP HOLE IN SOME WAY THEY CAN DRAG THEIR FEET. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO, OR ANYTHING BEING DONE ABOUT THIS?!
