2007 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 132008

Malibu 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,144 miles


While driving and turning, the power steering failed on my 2007 Chevy Malibu making turning virtually impossible manually. Once I was able to stop the vehicle, I put it in park and tried the steering - no change. I shut off the vehicle and turned it back on and the power steering reset. This has occurred 5 times in the past two weeks. If I am setting still, I can turn the steering wheel completely to the left and the power steering will fail. Also I have noticed during driving and still (waiting at a light) the steering wheel tends to pulsate back and forth. I reported this to dealership a month ago when vehicle was oil serviced. They said they found nothing at that time. I see from research there were a lot of complaints with the 2004 model, but cannot find any remedy. After reading other complaints, I am very concerned about the safety of this vehicle. I have read where other vehicles have crashed due to this and I prefer to not be involved in an accident thus killing someone in my car or another.
