2006 Malibu Maxx Electric Power Steering

I have read other posts where the writers had problems with their power steering. It freaked me out the otherday when after starting the car I proceeded to drive out the driveway when the electric power steering went off. he message on the info board on the dash just said problem with power steering. I was able to back up and park the vehicle. Called Onstar and had them do a diagnostic and found no problems. Left the car and being a weekend could not get any help. My husband jumps in on Monday morn (tuesday actually - long weekend) starts up the car and drives it to the dealer with absolutely no problems. I have read that it resets itself. Can this happen while driving on the highway as I can see this a being potentially dangerous? Should I be scared and worried? The dealer did nothing to the car as basically there was nothing to do. I m´ from Guadalajar Mexico I have a Malibu 2007 in 4 times aprox. My Malibu turn off the electric steering, and I feel panic,because the first time i was diriving in a road with curves.My dealer say this is normal but is not. I am a mechanic i think the problem is when the car have a small diference in voltage the steering electric turn off a few seconds but the electric steering only its most hard to move but you don´t lost the steerig you can move. Only you need more muscles. I don´t like this problem. I change the battery for other of more amperage. Since i change batery i don´t have this problem maybe it´s a coincidence. Alejandro Gomez. sorry about my english write.

We're having a popping sound in the steering in my 2006 malibu maxx hatchback ? Is there a recall . Please help


i just bought a 2005 malibu maxx from a dealership. It was having a popping sound when i would turn the wheel back and forth. Had the dealership fix it. THEY said they replaced the ( rack and pinion ) for the steering on the car. Don't think there is a recall on that. GM had a lot of problems with that popping noise on their malibu maxx. Hope that might help.
