You may want to check this with your dealer, but not too recently the cav and sunfire had a recall on the Power Steering. Something about a bad gear and power failure when making left hand turns. They would either replace the faulty gear or the whole rack and pinion assembly. Either way have it checked out. A steering problem is not a nice problem. It may cause accidents or death.
