2006 cHEVY COBALT 2006 ELECTRIC POWER STEERING PROBLEM-I LIVE IN TEXAS-WHEN THE TEMP GETS TO 100 DEGREES-I GET 3 WARNING DINGS & THE WORDS POWER STEERING ON MY DASHBOARD & IMMEDIATELY I HAVE NO POWER STEERING. WHEN IT COOLS DOWN, IT WILL WORK FINE. DEALER SAID $100 TO CHECK-BUT ON ALL OTHER COBALTS-IT HAS BEEN POWER STEERING PUMP OR RACK & PINION PROBLEM-THEY ARE $1000 EACH..WON'T DO ANYTHING TIL I PAY $100. ANYONE ELSE WITH THIS PROB--CALL NATIONAL HWY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMIN 1-888-327-4236 SO THEY CAN GET CHEVY TO DO A RECALL.

Any of you Cobalt guys have the ignition housing fail yet?...or how about when the AC is on full, do you get condensation flying out the vents?

Oh wait..I'm waiting for topix poster Ike to tell me my Civic sucks..lol.

I have the same problem in Va. Please Lord let them do a recall I can't afford to have it fixed I have tried several outlets all give me no hope. I did call safecar.gov but they said it could take months up to a year to get results, what are we to do til then.

I filed a complaint with the NHTSA, was told that the number of complaints being filed has sparked an investigation. I trust they will see the issues we are facing. A recall is in order, but now that the government runs GM I wonder if they would force a recall on their own country?

well good what is the website for NHTSA so I and others can also file a complaint. Good job I already did a complaint with www.safecar.gov and they acted like it could take up a year so maybe this other will move it quicker.

Look for a class action lawsuit soon. I drove off the Blue Ridge Parkaway because of the steering going out. Luckily there was a grove of fruit trees stop me.

My goodness, I had electric steering in my Saturn VUE Redline back in 2004 and the system worked well.

I own a 2009 Colbalt SS with about 10,000 miles on it. No problems yet and I do live in SW Florida and the weather is plenty warm here also. What has been changed or updated with the electric steering in my 2009 Colbalt?
