  1. Steering Wheel Deterioration

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    My 2014 Chevrolet Volt steering wheel is beginning to come apart. The cushioning is getting unglued from the frame at the 11 o'clock position. Since the car is always in a garage, at home and at work, I'm surprised it's already deteriorating. I do have a GM extended warranty, but the dealer...
  2. Creaking in Bolt EV Steering

    Chevy Bolt EV Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs
    We've had our Bolt going on 3 months and have had what sounds like a creaking noise coming from the front since we got it. It's audible at low speeds and appears to be related to the steering (when stopped and I turn the wheel, the noise is heard). Anyone else experiencing this?
  3. Feeling the steering

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    I can feel the movement of my steering system under my left foot. I am wondering whether the grabbing of my cabin floor by the steering components is a mechanical problem. My foot feels like the steering is getting caught on the carpet. I have also experienced steering grab on the wheel. The...
  4. 2014 Volt: Clicking or Knocking Sound on Slow Turns

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Recently, my 2014 Volt began making a clicking or knocking noise whenever the wheel is sharply turned to the right, such as when turning into a driveway. A shallow right or normal driving inputs are fine. It's just slow, sharp right turns. The sound appears to be coming from the front suspension...
  5. VOLT Steering Problem Class Action question

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    Attached FYI is a link to a PDF I downloaded showing the new class action lawsuit against GM (Volt steering system sticking on center, etc.) Does anyone have an educated idea of what actually could be causing the problem? The suit itself is rather unclear, although there are a large number of...
  6. Steering center "bump" issue

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    So I took a trip this week from Los Angeles to Santa Rosa CA. The trip involved a long drive on the I5 highway... Which is a very long straight highway. I have experienced the center dead spot in my power steering. Some Volt drivers have described it as a "sticky" spot. Some Volt drivers...
  7. Large number of cabin, steering, and hatch noises dealer can't fix, out of patience

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Anyone else experienced anything like the following or have any advice? I love the Volt, but... my 2012 Volt has a large number of cabin, steering, and hatch noises the dealer can't fix, and I am out of patience and tired of wasting time after taking it in for 5-6 services over the last...
  8. Steering not tracking straight on highway

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    I have put 500 miles on my 2013 Volt and it has been great except for one issue.... If I don't constantly make steering corrections, it wanders to the right. On the highway, if you release the steering wheel and count to 5 you will have changed lanes. Regardless of which way the road slopes it...
