My wife has an '05 Malibu. I'm curious whether there's been any reported 
immunity issues with GM's electronic power steering system (I've never 
put a mobile rig in her car, so I have no first-hand knowledge). It uses 
a torque sensor on the steering shaft, servo amplifier, and electric 
motor in place of the traditional hydraulics. That motor is powerful, so 
an RF-induced steering error wouldn't be a pleasant scenario!
