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.

The steering makes a clunkin noise. It turns back and fourth by itself when driving and while parked.some times when I start the car the radio says power steering when I start the car.when these problems happen I turn the car off open door so the radio goes off than start it and than it works fine until it sits turned off for a little while.sometimes I'll have to turn car off and on about five times before it works.I have read that Pontiac G6 S from 2006 through 2007 have a steering recall for the steering torque sensor but I gave GM my VIN and they said my car doesn't have that recall.so I took my car to the dealership to have the other recalls taken care of and to check my steering and they said it is the torque sensor.why is it the same sensor as the other G6S with the same problems they have recalls and mine is not under recall.it cost me 600$.I must pay because it's very dangerous to drive.

I started the car and there was a message on radio display that said power steering. When I tried to turn the wheel it was very difficult to turn. I took my car to the Chevy dealership and they said there was a recall but my vehicle was not a part of the recall. Please add my vehicle to the recall.

Was driving down the 101 hwy in California just South of arroyo grande and felt steering get a little stiff when going around a slow semi. Slowed to under 30mph to turn off hwy to job site and it was like trying to steer a wheelbarrow with 600lbs of dirt on it. Get the picture" if it was my wife she might have crashed. I became aware of the recall just 3 weeks after and recently found out my assembly date isn't included. It was assembled 12/06 according to door jam sticker. What's up with that"

While driving on the highway the power steering indicator came on and sounded and the power steering on my 2007 Pontiac G6 stopped working and it was difficult to steer the vehicle. I was able to reset it by restarting the vehicle but it will continue to lose the power steering. My steering wheel shakes even when I am at a complete stop. I have spent too much money getting parts replaced and the issue continues. I don't understand why GM does not have a recall on this car for this problem. This is extremely dangerous for the power steering to stop working in the middle of driving.

While driving on the highway my electronic power steering service alarm went off and the eps message showed up on my clock panel. Right after, my eps suddenly turned off and stopped working. Steering my wheel is extremely hard to do. I'm lucky it didn't cause an accident, but because of its sudden malfunction, it very well could have. I don't even feel safe in my Pontiac G6 anymore.

When I turned the vehicle on the power steering was no longer working. I turned the vehicle back off and it started working again than about a week later the power steering went out while driving and the vehicle was very hard to drive. I took it to shop and they said it had a recall on it it was the torque sensor and that I should contact Pontiac. I did and they said that my car's VIN number wasn't listed and even though it was probably a defect that they couldn't help me and it cost $358 to fix.

The power steering would not work upon starting the car and we would need to turn the car off and on again to get the power steering to work. After about a week of this happening my husband was driving home from work and the power steering completely stopped working. We contacted GM to see if our car was included in the recall but they said our VIN number was not and that we would need to pay out of pocket for the repairs. So indeed that is what we did but we are quite unhappy that we have the exact problem indicated on the recall but we need to pay out of pocket because our VIN number is not included.

As I was driving on a main road at about 55mph, a "power steering" message displayed on the driver information center and a chime sounded. Steering control was then manual and I had to exert great force to steer at lower speeds. I figured right away that my power steering had gone out since I could not turn easily. I immediately chose to pull over to avoid putting myself or anyone else at harm. Since then, the power steering goes in and out. It has happened at all speeds (parked at 0mpgh, at 70mph, at 25mph, etc.). it is not safe and I am hoping NHTSA can help me get this resolved. I have taken extremely good care of my vehicle which has 120,000 miles on it and have a perfect driving record. I searched for a recall via my VIN # only to find out that GM isn't recalling the power steering on my vehicle. I can't understand why since there is a recall for just about every other type of Pontiac G6, including 2007. Where do I go from here? I don't have the money to get this fixed right now and don't want to put myself or others at harm.

The contact owns a 2007 Pontiac G6. The contact stated that while reversing out of a residential driveway, the steering wheel seized and excessive force was required. The electrical power steering warning light illuminated. The contact mentioned that after shutting the vehicle off and restarting it, the vehicle resumed normal operation. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the torque sensor was defective. As a result, the technician reprogrammed the steering control module. However, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and stated that the VIN was not included in the NHTSA campaign numbers: 15V064000 (steering) and 14E044000(steering). The approximate failure mileage was 148,900.

On my way into work this morning, the warning for "power steering" flashed on my car and the steering suddenly quit working on my 2007 Pontiac G6. I was going about 40 mph on a straight stretch through town. Luckily, I hadn't merged to get on the interstate yet. Took the car to the nearest dealership and they informed me it's the torque sensor on the electric power steering. They also stated that there was a recall for 2006-2007 Pontiac G6's, but that my car/VIN was not covered under this recall as it was built outside of the batch of cars the recall covered. I have to pay $230 out of pocket until they decide that this is an issue. This is clearly a manufacturing issue and could be very dangerous for all drivers on the highway. See recall details below: Recall subject : sudden loss of electric power steering, 1 investigation(s) report receipt date: Feb 04, 2015 NHTSA campaign number: 15V064000 component(s): Steering potential number of units affected: 69,633 manufacturer: General Motors llc.

While driving on a residential street the power steering message came across the message board and the steering became hard to maneuver. I pulled into a auto parts parking lot and turned off the car when I turn the car back on the power steering was restored. This has happened multiple times since the first occurrence I have called Pontiac and asked about recall information only to be told that my VIN number is not included in any open recalls.I feel unsafe driving the vehicle sometimes the steering wheel vibrates and turns by itself while the car is idling.
