    SPECIAL COVERAGE FOR LOSS OF POWER ASSISIT

    GM has released the bulletin providing coverage to the power steering system
    heres the info


    Subject: Special Coverage Adjustment - Loss of Power Steering Assist #07126 - (12/03/2007)

    Models: 2005 CHEVROLET MALIBU, MALIBU MAXX

    2005 PONTIAC G6

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Condition
    Some customers of 2005 model year Chevrolet Malibu, Malibu Maxx, and Pontiac G6 vehicles may experience a loss of power steering assist caused by electrical input signals within the steering column assembly. If the power steering assist is lost, a chime will be heard and the DIC will display a Power Steering warning message. The Service Vehicle Soon light will also illuminate. The vehicle can still be steered in a safe manner but will require greater driver effort at low vehicle speeds or when stopped.

    Special Policy Adjustment
    This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 7 years or 70,000 miles (110,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.

    Dealers are to replace the steering column assembly. This repair will be made at no charge to the customer.

    For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after December 3, 2007, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to December 3, 2007, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.

    Vehicles Involved
    Involved are certain 2005 model year Chevrolet Malibu, Malibu Maxx, and Pontiac G6 vehicles built within the following VIN breakpoints:



    2005
    Chevrolet
    Malbu
    5F100002
    5F250217

    2005
    Chevrolet
    Malibu Maxx
    5F100001
    5F250216

    2005
    Pontiac
    G6
    54106669
    54165719

    EDIT:
    Even if you are over the 70K mile limit take your car in and see if GM will help cover some of the cost of fixing the system.
    I have seen them pay for all but $100 of the repair b4.
    customer paid $100 for what would have been a $600-$700 repair

    Remember if "the" and "and" are spelled right its not a genuine Ahuhn post


    Dear God, please send clothes to all those poor ladies in Daddy's computer. Amen.

    They are sending out letters to the vehicles covered under this warranty. I received my letter this week.
