DITTO! if only they had admitted they had a problem at the onset, i would still have mine. it's the fact that GM had their heads buried in the sand and ignored the complaints that kept me from keeping the car, NOT the steering issue.

i figured if they wouldn't own up to THIS issue, what other problems could i have that they would ignore?

in the meantime, i'm really enjoying my Wrangler Unlimited with the top OFF for the summer.....ah,

hope it all works out for everyone that has experienced this problem....Kevin

My steering went out...

Not sure what to do! Do I wait until a resolution is made and risk getting into a potential life threatning accident? Or trade it in for something else? My 05 G6 was used for business use and now I own it with 98k miles. I wonder if GM does fess up and agree to fix the problem will they have a mileage limit as to what they will take care of? Hmmmmm

Everyone seems to hate the electronic power steering. I love it, so smooth and easy. Hopefully not defective, but I haven't had a single issue with the steering in my 2005.
