Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

2 Answers

I've had the same problem with my 2006 Chevy Cobalt

I've noticed that many cobalt owners are having the same issue with the steering. I'm hearing different stories on what it would take to get it fixes. Most are saying it is going to be expensive to fix even though it's just like a short in you electronic power assist. It is said that the steering system would have to be replaced. I'm hoping that's not true but like i said this is what most are saying that have had the same problem

Well it's happening again. I wrote about the powersteering on my 2006 cobalt back in March of this year and my husband dried out the stuff (lack of the right word) and it seemed to be ok now its started up again and it's worse if I pull over and cut it off and then recrank it it's ok for a few miles (give or take a few) but I want to know why they have not recalled this problem from what I'm seeing on different websites (youtube : 2006 chevy cobalt recalling being one of them) this problem GM needs to take care of

Power Steering


Yes your absolutly right.
I have a 2006 Cobalt and my power steering completly failed. And this isn't a cheap fix. A quote of over $700 for a steering column replacement because these cars run electronic steering. Unless your under warrenty start searching salvage yards for working steering columns.

Power steering on 2006 chevy cobalt


There is NO power steering fluid in a 06 Cobalt. It is electric! This is a flaw that GM is not willing to come to terms with. Try topix.com for the list of over 350 people that this has happened to. Also, the dealership wants YOU to pay for it. There should be a recall. VERY dangerous!

Where to put steering fluit in the cobalt ls 2006


There is no place. The Cobalt has an electric power steering system. There is a bad problem with this car. My nephew had problems and when checking found out that there are way too many problems with this system. The entire steering column assembly has to be replaced. There is no recall issued on this for the Cobalt, but I heard that there was a similar issue recall for the Malibu. Hope this helps. I feel your pain!!
