I got a letter from Chevrolet - says if the electrical steering problem happens within 10 years of the date of purchase or 100,000 miles, the "condition will be repaired for you at no charge"...It says the letter has to presented to the dealer as authorization to perform the service, though - (?) It says "If you have questions related to a potential reimbursement, please contact the Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-630-2438. The reimbursement claim form has this #: 1-800-204-0261. Good luck!

I need to add power steering fluid on my 2006 chevy malibu V6 3.5 liter engine were is it located


You will want to verify you have hydraulic power steering. Electronic power steering was an option on Malibu's and this may be why you cannot find the reservoir. The power steering pump would be driven by the belt in the event you have a hydraulic system. Thus making it easy to locate.

THE POWER STEERING LOCKS AND IT IS SO HARD TO TURN HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST TO FIX. 2006 CHEVY MALIBU


The power steering is electric. There is no pump and no fluid to check. Most people end up with a new steering column installed. The electronic steering is what helps the car get such great gas mileage though. This is a big problem with these cars and you need to take it to the dealer. Hopefully GM is on there way with a recall. If they dont do something i will never buy another gm product again!

My 2006 Malibu steering wheel is going bad.


The power steering is electric on that car. It has a electric motor on the column, and a control module. There are several causes that could be the problem. You need to have it scanned to get a better idea of what to do. If you can give me the codes you get then I will be glad to advise you on what's best. Good Luck
