Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

As I attempted to turn left the steering was difficult to turn and the gas wasn't accelerating correctly and suddenly took off and crashed into a vehicle ahead of me.

I was driving and my power steering light came on and I lost power steering. I almost bit a car and went in the ditch. I am being told by GM that it's not covered because I have 2007 G6.

While driving through a tunnel which comes up to a sharp bend a little after exiting at about 45 miles per hour I felt like I was not in control of my car as it felt as if it was locking up and moving in its own direction. So I hit the brakes (just got brakes done) to slow down a bit but it didn't seem to brake quick enough for me to feel safe. So before coming to the bend there is another exit to go into town that I took to drive at a slower speed. While taking that way home I had lights to stop at and as I accelerate it was hesitant at times to pick up. Lastly every time I start up the car there is a ticking noise that is consistent which I still don't know what it is from. The brakes may be an issue with who did my brakes but the power steering is an issue and when I waited until today to check the fluid I could not locate so I went online to find out where it was and come to find out I may have an electrical one and found numerous reports regarding power steering issues. My car does not feel safe to me and it is now my only transportation to work.

The car chimes and the information screen on the radio would display *power steering*. the steering would lock up completely and the only way to correct it, is to turn the car off and back on again. The steering also twitches and shakes while at a stand still. Twice the power steering went out completely while driving. Three days before it was scheduled to be fixed, the steering went completely out on my while driving. This is a serious problem that GM needs to address.

I was driving and noticed that my airbag sensor light was coming on. It occasionally comes on and it goes off. I'm having a issue with something underneath my car. I replaced tierod and got two front end alignments. Since purchasing this car in October 2013 I complained to dealership my concerns for my car not feeling safe. It seems to be something in steering or underneath vehicle. My thermostat gauge fluctuates from zero degrees to 220 degrees while driving. Water pump was replaced and it still occurs.

The steering wheel locks up while in use and sometimes when the car sits idle. The steering is electrical so there isn't a place to put power steering fluid which makes for a very difficult time trying to turn. I've had the outer tire rods replaced as well as the rack and pinions and now I've been told that the entire steering column has to be replaced. Where is the recall on this car!!!!

I was driving to work, and while merging, the power steering alarm came on and the power steering stopped working. I was able to get to the side of the road without causing an accident. I turned the car off, and back on. Everything seemed to be working again at that point. Less than one mile later, the same issue occurred. There was not really a shoulder to pull over to and I ended up in someone's driveway to avoid and accident, as this was a very well traveled route. Luckily, there were no accidents involved and that my daughter was not in the car with me. They ended up replacing the whole steering assembly. It had been giving me the warnings in the morning, which we thought was due to the cold. We didn't realize at the time that the power steering was electrically controlled. I could not imagine what would of happened if I was in the city and didn't have the room to pull over, nor the speed to do it.

The vehicle turned off when the steering column was turned completely. This of which put myself, as well as other drivers, in jeopardy. Luckily, this occurred in a parking lot with no other cars around. If this occurred on a highway turn-around or under different circumstances, many people could have been injured or killed.
