The steering column locked up as I was proceeding to leave a parking lot. I have read several reports of the same problem and believe this to be a very serious problem. Others have reported the steering locking up while driving down the road and I am afraid there is potential for serious injury here! ref. In EA02-031

Steering column locked up - response from tow truck, dealer repair, GM road service is "it happens all of the time" I guess we need to wait for a few deaths before anyone does anything ref. In EA02-031

1. the right front wheel weights flew off on the drive home from the dealer after purchase. The rear wheel weights flew off, first the left and then the right, while driving at night, slamming into the inner fender liners. The rear end began to bounce dramatically, as each wheel had over 4 ounces of weights on them. Wheels are the extra cost magnesium wheels. 2. on a trip, the gas gauge suddenly dropped to empty, from 3/4 full, and the dic alarm (low fuel) went on. Pulled into a gas station, thinking I was out of fuel. I could only put in 4 gallons! 3. steering column lock would not release and could not steer car, but car did start and go into gear ! I think this is the most serious failure as one may not notice that the steering column lock was on and actually drive off, but when attempting to turn vehicle could only go straight, as straight into sombody!! help!!!! ref. In EA02-031

Driver's side shoulder belt is over lapping and won't retract. A consumer had the vehicle in repair shop three times for repairs, and the dealer couldn't determine the cause. Driving at any speed and applying the brakes, the steering wheel is jumping out of the consumer's hand.
