The vehicle would drift to the left or right, which almost caused vehicle to veer out of its intended lane. Consumer stated issue only occurred in cold weather.

While driving between 10-45 mph, steering jerks to whatever way we are turning the steering wheel. Feels like its going to jerk out of your hands at times.

While driving steering wheel felt as if vehicle was on ice. There was no control. When vehicle hit bumps vehicle could not be controlled. Took to dealership. Was test driven. The problem was felt, but dealer could not locate steering problem for repairs. Steering was weird, but nothing was wrong. New tires put on & vehicle realigned. Problem still exists.

At 13000 miles poor braking and noise in front end. Dealer checks brakes finds that specs are met.29000 mi. Brakes are shot and replaced at my expense. GM says dealer must have misdiagnosed take it up with them even though historical data shows problem reported at 13000 miles.it isn't right that serious injury or death is the wake call that one of the usa's largest corporations needs to step-up to accepting responsibility for a product they engineered, designed, and marketed. I would expect that from china.
