GM got me to do a diagnostic and if it was really the EPS they would pay for either the part or the work, did it, got the diagnostic that it was really the EPS motor. GM called me back and told me they would'nt finally pay. So ended up with a 150$ diagnostic for nothing. They ****ing suck. I'd like to meet those engineers and give them shit. I changed my thermostat last week, took 3 hours 'cause it is sitting in the back of the engine bolted with a god damn aluminum water pipe. I could'nt even remove the pipe because i would have had to remove they hole exhaust manifold. I guess they were laughing out loud desingin this car!

damn shame

GM definately knows about this problem but their not guna do shit about this any time soon because their almost bancrupt. F'n *****es , i mean just think about it, GM almost goes out of business, gets brought back by government, and dosn't want to help their costomers when they got helped.


or it's probualy the gov. telling them not to because their almost broke also, trust me tho that it is all because of the economy 100%, good economy equals good things, bad = bad.

I have this same problem with my 2005 cobalt I have not had powersteering for almost a year now. I have contacted GM about this problem and of course they never heard of this happening before, no way thats true. Everyone needs to go higher up then just callin GM about it, I did send an email to safecar.gov and also usdot about it they are the ones that people should send there complaints to hopefully that will work soon.
