Steering problem

(2006 Subaru Outback)
in Denver, CO on December 28, 2010
When I start my car in the morning or anytime it's been sitting for several hours, I notice that my car makes a squealing noise when I steer it to the right or the left. It's also very slow to turn and seems to be sticking. I notice it most when it is cold outside and I do not have a garage to park it in. However once I've been driving it for 10-15 minutes the problem goes away.

This is typically caused by a loose or glazed belt. If it is original, I would get it and the other belts replaced.

Thanks I took to Big O tires and belt was replaced. It seems to be working better but I will have to test it out the next couple of mornings to make sure this issue is resolved.
