1999 GMC SUBURBAN Steering Linkages Problems, Complaints and Defects

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI have a 1999 gmc suburban that is having a problem with the power steering. I have taken it 3 times to a repair shop to have it looked at but what happens does not occur every day. It seems that the power steering "goes out" for a few seconds - usually when going around a curve, causing the steering wheel to jerk and the vehicle to swerve. I read about a recall that gmc was doing to replace a faulty bearing in the power steering that was causing this problem and i contacted them about it. They opened a file for me but informed me that my year vehicle was not included in the recall and if enough people complained, they might do a recall. Otherwise, i would be responsible for the repairs myself. I have contacted a gmc dealer and this repair is very costly, according to them. I feel if gmc has so many other vehicles that they are having this problem with, and they used the same part in my vehicle, i should be entitled to have it repaired at their cost before it causes an accident. They are obviously aware of the problem.*ak
