Power steering nightmare - this is our baby hauler
Guys, recently my wife's 2005 G6 has had the "power steering" message on the info screen. Yesterday I decided I was going to fill it up with fluid. So I got online to check what kind of fluid and quickly discovered the horror stories regarding the 2005-2006 electronic power steering on these cars.
Let me just say that this is a disgusting display of customer service to not offer this extended warranty for the life of the vehicle. Am I really out of luck because the vehicle has over 100 k miles? This has got to be a joke.
So what happens when my wife and 7 year old and 9 month old are driving this POS and the steering locks up in the middle of a turn, on the highway, or ANYWHERE really???
I could go on all day about this, but I am not really a complainer I am a fixer. First I am going to have my wife go to the GM dealership and ask them to fix it. If they don't fix it I will fix it myself so I need to know the exact tools and parts and instructions and I think I can fix it piece of cake. I work on my own vehicles all the time so this shouldn't be an issue but you never know.
Yes, this is my first post and this is the one and only reason I registered here. Please help with some guidance on the DIY aspect of fixing this problem, thanks in advance.
