The contact owns a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The contact stated that the electric power steering (eps) failed and caused the steering wheel to be extremely tight. The steering wheel had to be manually maneuvered from right to left with difficulty. The eps indicator flashed a warning each time after the failure occurred. The contact had to apply force to maneuver the steering wheel to ensure that the vehicle was safely driven. The dealer (lindner Chevrolet, 2805 fremont dr, caÑon city, co 81212, 1-719-315-1390) was notified and the vehicle was left at the dealer for over a month for test driving and diagnostic testing.

Driving at highway speed holding the steering wheel straight the truck will move quickly to the left lane some time and then other times to the far outside of the right lane. Also I have had it move all the way to left lane and the all the way back across the right lane to off the road. Have notice as well that you can be turning the steering wheel to the right and the truck is still going to the left. When driving in a curve and coming back to center from the right it will snap back really fast not nice and easy like from the left. The truck has done this from day one I have tried to get GM to fix it but the say there nothing wrong I have drove 7 other truck like mine and they all had like there should the drive straight down the road.
