all that GM recognizes as a cure at this time is a relubrication, however based on the experience of many members here, this solution is often not permanant... Many of us, myself included, believe that a re-design is in order

its possible, im sure that GM is 100% aware of the problem, especially with the TSB on it. However, being 99.99999% an annoyance, they surely feel no compulsory to redesign or recall the existing steering shaft design

not to be a jerk, but GM isn't going to care one bit if people who buy their cars used are having issues like a steering clunk. If you bought new, or intend to sometime that'* a different story. Even more so, GM isnn't going to correct it from simply one thread on an enthusiasts message board for a model that'* discontinued, and all those vehicles who had this problem are now discontinued. (Bonneville, Aurora, LeSabre, some trucks, Regal, Riviera, etc.) there are millions of vehicles this affects. They wont' spend the money to fix a problem that is merely an annoyance with no safety hazard. I hate it as much as you do, but just realize GM isn't going to lift a finger to correct it.

My vote is to get it checked right away. Do not lose the shop ticket and keep on the dealer until it is fixed to your satisfaction. Having all of your invoices makes your claim easier if you have to go to Pontiac to have the problem fixed.
