My power steering went out while driving down the interstate entering an exit ramp at 50 mph. This is the first and only time this has happened. I've now parked my vehicle and haven't been driving it. I have two children under age 4 and cannot allow them to be in that death trap. After I pulled over to a safe area, I turned the ignition off and about 10 min later on again. After that, my steering was fine. I've also had the rack and pinion replaced 3 times for a click sound that is made anytime I turn to the left or right. I've been told it could be the steering links or even the tie rods and struts. It still makes that sound. Either way, all three times a certified GM mechanic replaced the rack and pinion because they were sure that's what caused the click and all my front end issues. When I had the first rack and pinion replaced, the water pump also needed to be replaced. This car is only two years old. I had the same body shop work on the vehicle each time something was replaced. I've feel jipped. I pay almost 400 a month for a car that could kill me! a definite recall needs to be done before someone kills someone else or their children die or themselves. I can't believe this thing has been under investigation for so long and nothing has been done. It's absurd.
