I have been having a very frustrated time researching the problem with my wifes car. This seemed like the best place to go for answers.
My wife and I bought a used 2006 Chevy Malibu 2.2 LT. after a couple of months my wife told me that the DIC on the radio showed a power steering warning. After looking for the Power steering fluid reservoir I called the dealership and found out that it has an power steering electrical assist motor inside the steering column. This is very new to me. I have read a ton of posts about the 2005 Chevy Malibu listed in a TSB and it being fixed by the dealership but nothing about the 2006. One person said the 2006 is also covered up to 70,000 miles but I can't find any information to support that. I am taking it in on Monday to the dealership and it would be very helpful to know if this problem is covered under one of the technical service bulletins so I don't have to pay big money to get this fixed. If anyone has a TSB Description that they can post it would be most helpful. I was going to pay for one but there are about 6 choices for 2006 power steering tsb's and I have no idea if any of them cover my car. Thank you in advance for any feedback on my situation!
