Chevrolet Camaro 2010, driving on interstate vehicle steering became stiff (felt as if it locked up). Slid off interstate across two lanes off traffic into the crash barrier. $23,000 worth of damage. Total of course. Airbags did not deploy, onstar did not activate.

Camaro 8-cyl

  • 63,900 miles
I have had my car for 1 year. When I get to 55mph the steering wheel shake so bad, it's unbearable. This have been going on since I bought the car. I took it back to the dealership and they said it was the alignment. They aligned for me. Well it ran pretty good for a couple of days and then it started back shaking. I also have a problem with the rotors or brakes or something to that nature. It sounds like a 18 wheeler when I stop. The rotors or something make some kind of wobbling noise when I drive. I turn the radio down quite often so I can hear if anything is coming off from the brakes. I'm not paranoid, because passengers in the car ask me all the time, "what's that noise". for me to have a decent car like the Camaro, I don't understand. Can you please run a thorough check on the tires, rotors, brakes on these cars. Also check the trunk too, because sometime my trunk won't open with the key nor by pushing the button on the inside of the car. I am concerned because I purchased a car over $30K and I'm not getting any enjoyment out of it. I'm scared to drive too far because the rotors or something may come off. Help please.

I just bought a 2010 Chevy Camaro on December 30th from a certified pre-owned car dealer and within a month later the power-steering pump fails and I have no power steering. It was one of the coldest days in the single digits, it's been a very bad winter for the northeast part of the us. In less then an hour before this happened the car was driving normally from supermarket to pharmacy to the restaurant where I bought lunch, which are all in a 7/8 block radius from my home. When I got home I couldn't find a place to park near my house because there isn't a whole lot of parking spaces in South philadelphia where I live, plus there's a corner bar on the corner who's customers don't live around here, so I parked about a block away. Not even an hour later a spot opened up in front of my house so I decided to go and get my car which when I found out the power steering was gone I was trying to turn the corner and trying to park my car took a lot of pain-staking force to turn the steering wheel and that is when I wrenched my lower back out and I was in pain. I'm disabled because I was in a car accident back in 2006 when I was working for a limousine company. I have bad lower back injuries consisting of herniated, bulging and ruptured discs. I was trying to turn the steering wheel to park and I wrenched out my lower back so bad that I'm laid up in bed. After doing some research online it seems I'm not the only one who is going through this problem or who's been through this problem many times over with the same power steering problem. When it's bitterly cold out the power steering pump breaks. I don't know why this isn't a recall yet because it's a part not covered under the power train warranty or the 5 years or 100K miles which ever comes first. So now I can't drive this car in the cold weather and where I live gets cold in the winter. This should be a recall please.

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The contact stated that the power steering failed. When the contact took the vehicle to the dealer, they were told that a stone broke the condenser on the power steering module. The contact stated that it was a manufacturing defect, because if road hazards could destroy a part that easy then it should have a shield around it. The VIN was unknown.

Traveling westbound on interstate 80 from reno to san francisco 55-65 mph, without warning my 2010 Camaro had 100 % loss of all power and operating functions; out of control down the mountain during heavy traffic I was able to stop the vehicle by jamming into the guardrail, trapping myself in car. Nothing onstar...I called my daughter in reno and told her to send help..I was in shock. I had no clue what happened or why..but after the traffic slowed down I exited the vehicle, still no help or response. Car started with limited abilities 25 mph; was advised that it was okay to drive back to reno and "bring it on in" at my convenience. Nothing was done. The car ready before the shuttle got back to the shop. The service men shrugged it off and told me to watch for the warning signs; I can't have any serious problems because they haven't had any electrical problems with these cars across the board??!I had no warning signs..I am lucky that I was not killed and did not kill anybody with my imaginary car problems. 2nd incident all systems went crazy, extreme heat coming from dash, no heat turned on, false readings, all warning lights and gauges went off, power locks don't work, no more auto start I requested service with no response for 5 days. I left a very expressive message for fleet manager and service dept finally responded. Bad service..rude. I paid over 300 for car rental GM picked up 1 day they concluded again nothing wrong with car. Malfunction was caused by snow and cold weather (not acceptable)because it wasn't driven in snow. 3rd time driving with kids on freeway in reno...guess what no power!! was advised once again that I could drive it on in the next business day. Well I learned the GM secret. Let her sit and she'll reset. I will not be able to live with the consequences of a death caused by a $50000 time bomb. Dream car not worth a life or the fear of what might happen everytime you start it.
