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.

I was driving my vehicle and my power steering went out. An error came up after this happened. I believe my vehicle has electric power steering.

We first started having problems with this vehicle 2 weeks ago. Started the car and the power steering indicator came on and we had no power steering. We shut the vehicle off and turned it back on and it worked. It would work off and on for awhile but as of the last few days there is no power steering at all. I called GM. They are saying our VIN is not included. This is a bunch of crap. The 2007 G6's were added for this problem just a couple weeks ago. I see there are several complaints about this and GM needs to do something before there are more crashes or deaths from this issue. It is very unsafe to drive. They GM dealership gave me an estimate of $600 to fix this. We do not have this kind of money to spend especially when it is something that GM should have been paying for all along. I am beyond done with GM if they don't rectify the situation.

Loss of all power steering while driving. Power steering displayed on display screen. Loss of power steering made it extremely difficult to drive and extremely dangerous. This issue could definitely cause a very serious accident. The problem then became intermittent in the following days it would take up about four time to start the car to be able to start driving without power steering. My car is not included in any of the recalls. I took to a GM dealership they diagnosed that the problem was indeed, the torque module sensor, which is the same as all the other vehicles under recall. So why is my vehicle not included"!"! I had this issue fixed today. Another issue that also just started happening in the past few weeks is my passenger airbag will intermittently will not work. The airbag display will show on my dash board and it will show that the passenger airbag is off. This light comes at random times whether or not there is someone sitting in the passenger seat. I also had this diagnosed at the GM dealership. The said it was my pps (passenger presence system) this also needs a new sensor and it will cost $700 to fix!!!! there is service bulletin regarding this for my car so they are obviously aware that this a common problem. The service tech at GM said that is extremely dangerous to drive with this (no kidding) and that if the airbag light is displayed on the dash none of my airbags will deploy. Lets hope that GM does not drag their feet on this, all someone needs is to loose their power steering, crash, and have no airbags deploy. I have not had my airbags fixed as I already had to spend $400 plus to have my power steering corrected. If GM does not correct this asap I predict they will have many more lawsuits coming their way. Lets hope I do not get into a serious accident until GM decides to pay for it or until I can save enough money to fix this safety issue.

Power steering not working, took vehicle to dealer 2/06/15 for recall as I'd read online about it. Dealer advised vehicle not covered by the recall, to contact GM directly. Just off phone with GM, told them I got email from NHTSA, and that NHTSA said it was a recall (NHTSA email cites various id #, 15V06400, expansion of 14V-153, GM#14772, recall #N140115). The GM operator suggested we bring it to a dealer & pay for the repair and ask them to validate if its covered by a recall, but said it is not covered. We do not see how it can't be covered, the car is in every parameter of the recall and is having the identical symptoms, including "power steering" appearing in the driver info center in the center of the dash. Report receipt date: Feb 04, 2015 NHTSA campaign number: 15V064000 component(s): Steering vehicle makemodelyear(s)2007pontiacg6details manufacturer: General Motors llcsummary: General Motors llc (GM) is recalling certain model year 2006-2007 Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu maxx vehicles manufactured April 1, 2006, to June 30, 2006, and 2006-2007 Pontiac G6 vehicles manufactured April 18, 2006, to June 30, 2006. In the affected vehicles, there may be a sudden loss of electric power steering (eps) assist that could occur at any time while driving. Consequence: If power steering assist is lost, greater driver effort would be required to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash. Remedy: GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the torque sensor assembly, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or Pontiac customer service at 1-800-762-2737. GM's number for this recall is 14772. Note: This is an expansion of recall 14V-153 to cover additional vehicles built between April 1, 2006 and June 30, 2006. Note.

As soon as I drove the car down my street, the power steering went out. I was alerted by a ding and then a message. I pulled over as best as I could and turned my car off and restarted. I got about 1 1/2 miles and onto a major street before it happened again. Again, I pulled over and turned off my car, then restarted it. As soon as I pulled away from the curb, it happened again. Thankfully I was on a straight road, otherwise I would have been in a very bad position. When I got to my destination (I continued because I was unable to turn the wheel to turn around) I nearly was in a wreck because it was so so hard for me to run the wheel, the car behind me wasn't ready for that. I did turn on my hazards just in case. I took it to my local GM dealership and was informed that it was a safety issue but because my vehicle make model and year had not been part of the recall, I would have to pay out of pocket. Estimation = $900 approx. I'm deeply concerned about the safety of my family as well as others who own this vehicle. It clearly isn't safe enough to be on the roads. Why have all of the other years been recalled for this very same issue, but 2007 hasn't?!

Without warning steering wheel starts to shake and then it lose power steering, you lose control and have to put effort into steering it so you don't crash. You can shut car off and when you restart the power steering seems fine and then it starts again with no warning. Very dangerous situation car manufacturer needs to include 2007 in their recalls!!!! almost went into a tree.
