Steering problem. Power steering goes out when slow down. Chevrolet is very aware of the problem and there is currently a recall on the later model vehicles. The 2000 we have is very dangerous and we have reported it numerouse times and wonder how many tragic accidents have to happen before it is corrected?

I have problems with my brakes and steering when I am braking and turning right or left. The power steering completely go out. I have to use all me strength to turn the steering wheel. Once you complete the turn and let off the brake the power steering comes back the steering wheel jerks back in place. I have replaced the booster, supply lines on brakes, power steering pump and supply lines and truck stills has same problem. The mechanics tell me that it is a design problem and Chevrolet will not recall and repair. All owners of these trucks need help as this is a very dangers problem. I have just seen on the news that Chevrolet is recalling a lot of vehicles and my model needs to be recalled and repaired also.
