Gm has a special warranty coverage up to 150000 miles on the power steering motor and torque sensor. I just had mine fixed for free today under the warranty but you have to take it to a gm dealer and make them look up the warranty

Under 150,000 miles OR less then 10 years old. If you have a 2010 your scred, GM will not cover it even if it is 1 day older. I just went through this.
