Fluid under my car. is this a DIY fix? I think has the 7 speed automatic. 722.9 ?
Engine runs shifts into gear but very hard to steer or turn.i have to usevalot of strentgh to steer it in any direction

car had multiple codes, and issue w/ suspension, and a steering angle sensor issue, got all those cleared up, now cant get rid of these lean codes.
problem sounded as if the battery was not charged fully. replaced with new battery, it still does it, but with the new battery it will start usually after removing key and trying again.
dealer says he went through the oil pan to replace the valve body and has notice that a bolt that holds the valve body in place is broken and he has to charge 1700 to replace the bolt
my trunk is not closing. it not catching the peice to close. it stays open. how do i fix it
it finally starts. has gone dead a couple of times at red light
I had problem with my battery, turning the car off and playing music for even a second will kill my battery.

I have sudden battery issues and had to jump start the vehicle about 4times recently. I read somewhere online that, opening the truck with remote key whiles the car is lock drains the battery.
I also, had a jump this weekend, and my Hood ESP and BAS warning lights came on and wont go away.
What can i do? This is the worse car i have ever had. This R500 was assembled hastily, and the did not put effort into it to accomodate consumers. How can they possibly put the battry under the passenger seat without any easy way of taken it out. Outrageous. Will advocate to Ban this vehicle.
