The "increased effort steering" warning light has been coming on about once a month for the past year but has always gone out. Ive never noticed any change in the steering performance.....UNTIL TODAY.
Went to start the car and the steering wheel would not turn without extraordinary effort, obviously no assist.
Managed to drive it a couple miles and suddenly normal steering. Next time I started it up, no steering assist again.
Limped it to the dealer and dropped it off. They will look at it tomorrow or whenever they have an opening, and let me know.
Has anyone else had any similar experience with steering failure? I would love to know what to expect.
Frankly, the Ultimate Driving Machine halo is quickly fading!
Thanks in advance.

There have been issues with the electric PS pump & steering racks - a Search will show previous discussions. Good luck!
