the EPS started in the 2012 ZL1 and it did "so well" (GMs words not mine lol) that starting in the year 2013 they made all SS and ZL1 models have the EPS as well. the v6's still have standard steering for now.

Three times in one day, and the day isn't over yet :-(

Wanted to get winter tires put on, can't get through Denver winter without them in a RWD. Ordered Blizzak Run Flats and drove to Discount Tires (where I purchased the tires) to get the tires swapped.

Where do I begin. I park the car outside their shop, mechanic comes around to get the car into the shop - 1st Power Steering error. We wait for 10 minutes. They were nice enough to not throw me off the queue. He pulls the car in and they get the tires swapped. Start car - 2nd Power Steering error. Boy, now we wait another 10 minutes and they can't get any other car in that spot to work on. He pulls the car out and parks it for me. I go into the shop to finish up signing some forms and come back - 3rd Power Steering error.

The frustration on their faces while waiting was obvious. They were crazy busy (-it snows tomorrow). At the end of it all, I was nothing more than a joke to everyone inside the shop. One older gentleman said "Hey at least it looks good", before cracking up so loud you'd think he was mental.

..I would say that the power steering complaint, with early A/C issues in very hot regions, are the two biggest mechanical issues so far documented. Neither are large in scale, but noteworthy. The S/C coupler and rear axle issues are driver concerns for the most part. The steering thing is the biggest concern, and has had some legs and needs to be addressed if it continues onward.

Power Steering went out Again!!!!

Well My Power Steering went out again today and I called the dealer while I was driving it and took it right in.Never shutting it off so they could see for their self's
The first time it was in they thought I was crazy and they never got it to act up.
Now they have seen for them self's that the problem is real.
Now the waiting game to see what they are going to do to fix this one.

My power steering failed today (9000 miles) I also stalled the car then the warning light....i pulled into my garage and tried to find the filler cap with no luck (yes i pulled the engine cover).

after reading this thread i went out and started the car, power steering is working again...had "Brandon" come up with a reason?

There is no filler cap for the PS, it's electric.

And here I thought the title of the thread pretty well clarified that.

Hey guys be nice to the guy, just because its an electric power steering pump doesn't mean it would be impossible to think it still has a reservoir for it..I mean duh it still needs power steering fluid.

I thought it was all electric i.e. no hydraulics so no fluid so no reservoir?

You got me, I thought it was an electric pump instead of a regular one part of the engine accessories! Lol

I guess my owners manual is the only one that specifically says "Power Steering Fluid (L99, LS3, and ZL1) - This vehicle has electric power steering and does not use power steering fluid." On page 10-30.

Another electric steering failure

2013 1LE electric motor gave up the ghost this morning in Florida ( 45 degrees ) at about 6,000 miles. It went out in a parking garage. I've had previous vehicles' pumps go out on me, but they don't come close to requireing the steering effort my 1LE does. (66 Mustang, '01 Tacoma, '83 S-10 blazer)

Trying to turn a sticky F2 supercar tire (285/35-20) at low speed darn near impossible. Oh, what really tops things off is that the clearance in the garage is 7'2" which means the tow vehicle (flatbed) cannot come and retrieve it!

I will have to worm my way out of that mofo (probably fighting hill-assist!)

Similar situation with my 2013 1LE, I live in FL as well and I've a little over 7,000 miles on my car. Just yesterday I got the power steering problem. I got a message that tells me to service the power steering and park assist along with the ABS, brake, and all 3 traction lights lit up. My steering was noticeably heavier, but it was still easy to steer even at parking lot speeds.

I shut the car off and turned it back on about 10 minutes later and it starts up no problem, no messages or lights on the dash at all.

Update: Electric steering problem was due to a significant difference in tire size that was on the vehicle.

steering difficulties

I would like to know if there are issues with the steering prior to failure. I have had my 2013 Camaro in the garage 5 times because the steering is difficult to control, automatically pulls one way or another without warning. The GM isn't any help, nothing changed, I called GM they say take it to the GM dealer. I have wasted almost all vacation time running this car to the garage. Help! I am very upset and ready to get legal assistance.

Add me to the list.

Started it up this morning was fine out of the drive way. Went to the 1st stop light to hang a left...has to fight the wheel to turn it. While driving it had assist, but the steering felt weird 2nd stop light...same thing....no assist. 10 miles on the freeway it was normal. Get off the freeway, no assist to turn right.

Only thing..no codes or messages. We'll see what it does on the way home.
