I have had several issues with my 2007 Pontiac G6 the steering wheel sometimes locks while steering and has gotten extremely stiff while turn that I have been unable to complete the turn. The steering wheel sometimes will move from left to right about half inch each while at a complete stop and in park. The front suspension seems to be loose it clucks and knocks while turning or hitting bumps the steering wheel also has a knock in it. Sometimes when a passenger is sitting in the front passenger seat the seat does not notice it and the passenger side airbag light says off and the seat belt light doesn't come on.

Recently my Pontiac G6 has been having power steering failure. Whenever I seem to turn the car to the left the steering will lock up. I have taken it to the Pontiac they said it was the steering column. This has been a persistent problem. I worry that it might lock up and cause and accident.
