The line blew out while we are on vacation, we have not been able to fix it yet. we will have to wait until we get home, but definitely puts a damper on things. Thankfully we were towing behind an RV, so we were not stranded.

Power steering fluid was pumping up threw resovir instead of down and whining noses so replaced power steering pump and rack and pinoion also power steering pressure hose and ordered new power steering pressure line come to find out line was defected but are replacing once again.

high pressure power steering hose . do not know where to have it fixed
Had this fixed by same shop 3 times since under warranty. Don't believe they are rerouting hose to prevent premature wear. Wonder if recall will be honored if preowned. Does anyone know?
Just lost power steering completely today. I've had the 'whining' noise all winter. Had the noise last winter too, and 2 local shops said it because of the cold. Another said it was because of the PS pump, but even the new ones make the noise too. ??? Really?? Either way, no PS, taking it to my dad's friend who is a ASE certified Chrysler mechanic and he does the work on the side too ... hope to get this fixed relatively low cost.
had the pressure hose changed twice already an now it still leaks
