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.

Your steering wheel could get stuck while driving and GM doesn't think that's enough of a safety hazard to warrant a recall.
Owners have complained that if they drive with their steering wheel in one position for a long enough, it can suddenly stick and become impossible to turn. The problem eventually remedies itself but not before making the driver sweat it out like Richard Simmons:
"At highway speeds the steering sticks, making it scary to drive and dangerous” the owner of a 2013 Cruze wrote to the the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).…keep reading article "No Help On the Way For Your Sticky Steering Situation"
