steering became more difficult, kept adding steering fluid, it would ease it temporarily, then go right back to being very-almost impossible to turn withough major struggle. finally had steering hose replaced. problem fixed.
had a leak and had to have the pump and hose replaced. They had to do lots of other work too, but I can't remember everything, Luckily it was all covered under warranty!!
