2004 Subaru Legacy Problems

At 150,000 miles, my Subaru Legacy developed a problem with the radio. Depending on my luck, the radio might or might not turn on. Eventually, the radio stopped working altogether, instead making a loud feedback type of noise. Subaru maintenance crew told me that the issue was electrical in nature and would cost upwards of $600 to repair.

2004 Subaru Legacy Questions

When car is under 60 mph and AC is on? When AC is not on or car is over about 60 mph, the noise is not there.

Servicing air conditioning was not help. Am told that it is "working like it is supposed to." Not acceptable. Needs to get fixed befor HOT weather.

When my car is in park or I'm trying to get out of a tight spot my steering jerks and is hard to turn my wheels. Also it makes a scretching noise. I checked the power steering fluid and it's fine. What is causing this problem?
