Power steering randomly failing while driving down the road. Must stop truck shut it off then restart several times before the power steering starts working again. This is very dangerous as it is pretty hard to steer the truck when the power steering fails. This has happened several times over the past few months but is now starting to happen more frequently.

When I was driving on the freeway the steering wheel suddenly locked up and got extremely hard. I was not able to control the vehicle which led me to drive off the road and almost hit another vehicle. This steering wheel lock up has occurred several time even while the vehicle is parked. This dis function is extremely dangerous and the Chevy dealer does not want to help me fix this dangerous issue because my VIN number does not show any recalls. However this make and model has been known to have the recall of the steering wheel disfunction. The message displayed is power steering wheel disabled.

The vehicle power steering went out while driving on the highway. The power steering light remains on on the dash. It does not show the recall for my 2015 Colorado, but other websites show that this was a recall for 2015 Colorados recently. Why is my truck not covered when the issue happened to my truck?

On Jan.4, 2022, warning came on dashboard to service power steering and power steering quit while towing a trailer on the freeway. Brought it in to dealer. They diagnosed it as bad battery and replaced the battery. On Feb.20 and 21st same issue happened and I lost power steering. New diagnoses was a problem with the steering gear. I spent over $2,700 to remedy this problem. I'm upset that 2015 Chevy Colorados were recalled for steering gear issues. Mine wasn't included in this recall and perhaps should have been. Pulling a trailer and losing power steering could have been catastrophic, putting me at risk as well as other traffic.

While inspecting underneath vehicle trying to locate a squeak on the driver side I found that the steering system has a leaked down my tie rod boot. I did some research on why it would randomly leak and found that it previously had a recall on my vehicle.

While driving experienced loss of powering steering....was able to continue driving for approximately 15 miles but it was a struggle. Reached destination, parked vehicle then returned in about 10 minutes got in vehicle and everything regarding power steering was back to normal and all warning indicators were off. Prior to that warning indicators (various) were flashing indicating power steering issue. My dealership checked for recalls by VIN. Stated vehicle didn't fall under any recalls. There are 2 recalls for this vehicle for same issue ( 2016 & 2021). My experience is exactly what is described in those recalls.

The power steering failed. There was no warning. This is the same vehicle year/make/model (2015 Chevy Colorado) that is impacted by a recall (16V054000) but apparently my specific truck was not part of the 2015 Colorado recall (according to GM)?

While driving several weeks ago a warning light came on the dash that stated Service Power Steering, Drive with Care. I immediately noticed I had zero power steering assist, this happened while driving down the freeway at a high rate of speed. I was able to pull off the road and shut off the vehicle, when re-starting the vehicle, the warning light was gone. After researching this incident I noticed this has been a reoccurring problem with the 2015 Colorado. I called to inform the dealership of the incident but they said my VIN did not qualify for the recall, even though I was experiencing the exact same problems!?! This is a serious safety hazard and I am extremely disappointed GM is not taking all 2015 models into account. It's obvious by doing a little research that other electrical connections inside their steering gear assemblies are failing as well. Heaven forbid this happens when someone is towing a heavy load. Very dangerous, not only for the driver, but others as well.
