EPS Should be recalled!
By Kate on

Vehicle

2005 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

There are many things I love about the Malibu, but the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) is not high on my list. I have heard that the component was purchased from Toyota (which should automatically raise suspicion). After many embarrassing noise episodes, the EPS finally went on my Malibu while on the Highway doing 65 mph. The fact that I have strong arms and the traffic was light is the only thing that saved me from a major accident. When is this hazard going to get enough attention to warrant a recall? Who do we complain to, (other than Chevy, they are useless).

Power steering didn't exist until about fifty years ago. So if the power steering unit goes out, it's not like you will get into an accident. And once cars get a few years old, things break. If that's the only thing wrong with your 5 year old car, you're doing pretty good.
