GM sues supplier over steering woes - Chicago Tribune

My 07' is at 35,600 miles. Sending it in for its 3rd steering column. First it was "clunks." Now, when you drive on a gravel road (or one that is washboarding), the whole column rattles.

So, if yours is doing this, its kind of hard for GM to deny it when they're suing the supplier... $30M in damages claimed so far with more expected...

Get yours before your warranty expires!

Recalls are for safety hazards. This does not present a safety issue, only an annoying noise.

there is an active TSB for it, and that's all that is needed.

Mine rattles a bit even at 5900 miles. It's going in for warranty in a few weeks for that and warped rotors. This is the second time the rotors have been warped!

What does this rattle sound like, I don't think mine does (yet), but maybe it does...

I have 40k miles, and it used to be a rental for 27k of those...

it kinda sounds like a marble rolling/bouncing around in the lower dash... i guess that's the best way to explain it... lol
esp when driving on a gravel road

Hmm...never really noticed it then...or maybe I have. I hear things rattle, but I always just assumed it was my coins in the center console, or shit in the glovebox or my phone charger under the center glovebox...
