2009 Pontiac Vibe steering feels like steering wheel not controlling direction of vehicle and slight turns cause car to turn more than it should. When parallel parking on left side of one-way street and pull into traffic, no visibility to see if cars coming from behind.

2009 Pontiac Vibe, which is mechanically identical to Toyota matrix, which in turn is based on Toyota corolla. All three vehicles have really light steering (too much boost from electric power steering) that it becomes very unstable and dangerous when the speed is over 50mph. I know that there are many people who reported this problem on Toyota corolla but I think NHTSA should be aware that Toyota matrix and Pontiac Vibe share the same problem.
