The 2015 Chevy Colorado is being recalled to fix intermittent power steering loss.

GM may have used the wrong bolts to secure the seat belts in certain 2020 and 2021 Chevy models.
Could the new bolts work? Maybe. But when it comes time to rely on the seat belts, it's better knowing the right parts were used to tether them to the frame.…keep reading article "Some Newer Chevy Vehicles May Have the Wrong Seat Belt Bolts"
GM is recalling 850 vehicles with improperly welded fuel pumps.
The automaker says the joint that connects the fuel pump’s outer housing to the pump’s flange may not have been properly welded by the supplier. Over time, the weld could crack and cause a separation of the high-pressure fuel pump from the flange, allowing the pump to oscillate inside the engine compartment.
The oscillating pump can bump into a nearby fuel line and calamity ensues.
The recalled vehicles include the 2018 Chevy Colorado, Equinox, and Malibu, as well as the Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac ATS, and GMC Acadia, Canyon, and Terrain.keep reading article "Oscillating Fuel Pumps Creating Fuel Leaks in 2018 GM Vehicles"
The Bosch fuel pump that Chevrolet used in a small number of 2018 models is moving and creating a potential fuel-leak nightmare.
GM says the joint that connects the fuel pump’s outer housing to the pump’s flange may not have been properly welded by the supplier.
That weld could crack and cause a separation of the high-pressure fuel pump from the flange, allowing the pump to oscillate inside the engine compartment.
The moving pumps can damage a high-pressure fuel line which is going to create an even higher-pressure situation when you start spraying flammable gas onto hot car parts.keep reading article "Leaking Bosch Fuel Pumps Recalled in 2018 Models"
Started my 2015 Colorado last night Jan 21, 2019 and the dash showed power steering loss. Could not use my truck, steering did not work. Next morning everything was ok. There should be something we could do about this. My vin is not on the recall list and I only have 26,000 miles on my truck. General Motors should be taking care of this problem.
Loss of Power Steering is NO JOKE! Lost power steering (plus ABS, Stablitrak) traveling down the highway. I thought I'd crash when I realized it didn't steer like my old '69 with manual steering. If I didn't have the arm strength to limp to where I was going, I would have been calling for roadside assistance. I can't imagine what might have happened if the failure occurred while I was in a turn.
Lost power steering and was 68 miles from home. Drove home and had to fight the steering all the way. Took truck into dealers today and they checked it out and said that my electric power steering units was out and I'm now stuck with a total bill of $1920.00.
