sorry if this was answered already!

I called to get mine lubed up, too, but the service manager here said that they don't lube them anymore, but they replace the whole shaft with the updated one from GM. Which means that GM knows that it'* a problem that is their fault.

This is good news indeed. While not a major problem to me, it would be nice to get it replaced if they will cover it.

But is the cost covered by GM if you're out-of-warranty? I called the dealer here, and they've had the updated shaft for a while, but the cost is up to the consumer as of yet...

Okay, just called the dealer here, and they said that as of yet, it is still a TSB. He said that as soon as I get the notice in the mail, then I"ll know that the recall has officially launched.

Although, if I called GM now and got a service number and demanded they pay for it, they probably will.

Here'* the scoop, it is still a TSB and the cost is up to the owner,

For me, they didn't replace, they found someplastic heat shield was hanging and would rub on full right turns.

No charge for this and 2 other small things fixed

As an EX GM Partsman....I can tell you that the "LUBE" TSB is a crock of BS! This only passifies most owners until the car is out of the "WARRANTY" stage & then the customer is left to PAY to get the REAL FIX!

My warranty will run out soon. Should I ask that the Intermediate Steering Shaft be replaced before my warranty expires? I had the lube done about 8 months ago.
