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 -
