while driving steering seems to feel as if it is locking up. i have to give it a little tug to free it and that causes the car to swerve a little. it seems like something is holding the steering in that position, while driving there is movement in the steering. *tr

around the time i bought the car, on 11/30/12 at 5812 miles, unknown to me the car had a concern of loss of battery charge which called for an inspection of the generator control module. so a gen control module performance test per recall was performed. in may of 2013, i stopped at red traffic light and the engine was idling, when i proceeded to accelerate by placing my foot on the gas pedal at the green light, the vehicle shut off on me. this had nothing to do with the automatic shut-off that conserves energy. on 6/24/13 at 14006 miles, i tried to get them to do a diagnostics and i don't think they did a diagnostics even though i was still under bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranty. they suggested a test drive with a mechanic foreman to see if the issue would present itself again. the issue did not occur again. in july of 2013, i then complained that the car had poor engine acceleration entering onto a highway and took it in for service at 14810 miles. they did a r&r ecm recalibrate controller program. on july 26, 2014, i drove earlier in the day for quite a few hours through the city and a little on the highway. i accelerated once on the highway at which the issue of acceleration presented itself again. at 38,548 miles, the following messages was shown on my dashboard: 1. battery service needed 2. power steering service needed i then called onstar and i asked them to do a diagnostics and they gave me the following messages: 3. engine control module cruise control system not performing as expected. (p155a) 4. powertrain system has detected malfunction related to cruise control system. cruise control disabled. (c0800) 5. powertrain system has detected malfunction related to transmission. the check engine light will not illuminate. vehicle performance and shift behavior may be affected. top shift feature will be disabled if equipped.

purchased 2013 chevy malibu eco in august 2013, and recently started noticing that steering wheel becomes very stiff and feels like it locks when driving over 60 mph and in a 12 o'clock steering position. i have to jerk it when making slight turns or changing lanes, and has almost caused me to have an accident. i took it to freeway chevrolet in chandler, az. the car was left there for four days, and dealer said they could not find any issues. i was told that the steering power is electrical and their computer reads that there are no issues with it. well, i am still encountering same issue and fear i may have a fatal accident. now that i see i am not the only one experiencing this issue, there may be a lawsuit coming against chevy. *tr

when driving the malibu at highway speeds the steering sticks, almost like a dead spot at the center position. minor corrective inputs are difficult, take more force than needed. *tr
