Hello. I took my 2006 Chevy Malibu into the dealership because my power steering light would come on when I turned right. I also had them rotate and balance the tires as regular maintenance. The car drove and handled fine so I assumed that it was just a sensor. They looked at the car and four hours later told me that it was a senor that had gone bad in the steering column and that it would be $850.00 to fix. I told them not to fix it and I would like the car back. I picked the car up and now there is a knocking noise when I turn the wheel left or right about nine/ten o?clock, so I took it back immidately. They put it on the lift and the noise is coming from around the tie rod area. They said that they did nothing to cause this and unless I can prove it?s their fault they aren?t going to do anything. I am out of warranty on the car.
So my questions are: The noise absolutely was not present when I drove it there in the morning and when I picked it up it was there. I feel it was in their possession so it should be their responsibility. What is the legal responsibility here and what should I do? And what could they have done to cause this noise?
