Vehicle wanders while driving at 40 mph or more. Vehicle was inspected by dealer, but nothing could be found. Can NHTSA provide additional information regarding this matter. * power steering moved irrationally causing the driver to move into other lane.

The air-conditioner was cooling fine one day then the next it wouldn't blow cool air at all. So I take it to the Chevrolet mechanic he said the compressor was shot and it would cost about $700 to fix it. One evening I went to crank my truck and it wouldn't do anything but click well guess what it was the starter not cheap another $60. One day I was driving down the road the cop stops me and tells me that I have no brake lights on the right side luckily he warned me but a new harness cost like $50.also my power sterring pump that has went out twice in less than a year costing about $80 each time.the only thing I have to say is that this may be the last Chevy that I ever own and that is saying a lot because I myself has owned four my family three that is seven if I can add, so that could be alot of vehicles that could go to another make all together. This is not a threat jus want my air-conditioner fixed, but they say that there is a nationwide backorder just my luck.
