Complaint - Steering

WITHOUT WARNING, THE POWER STEERING "WENT OUT" ON MY CAR AS I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. I SENSED THE STIFFNESS IN THE STEERING, WAS ON A VERY STRAIGHT ROAD, AND WAS ABLE TO SLOW THE CAR AND BRING IT TO A STOP. HAD I BEEN ON A ROAD WITH CURVES, I WOULD MOST CERTAINLY HAVE HAD A BAD ACCIDENT. I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO A DEALERSHIP FOR REPAIR, AND WHEN I PICKED IT UP I NOTED THIS ON THE DESCRIPTION: "CUSTOMER STATES CAR HAS NO POWER STEERING. CAUSE: IMPROPERLY SEALED. " FURTHER: "DIAGNOSE AND REPLACE SPLIT POWER STEERING COOLER PIPE HOSE AND PER BULLETIN 060232014." I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS A REFERENCE THAT IS STRICTLY "HOW TO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM" OR IF THIS INDICATES THAT THIS IS A NOTED PROBLEM. IF SO, IT SHOULD BE A RECALL! MY CAR HAS LESS THAN 30,000 MILES AND HAS BEEN DRIVEN VERY CONSERVATIVELY. IF THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED WITH ANY FREQUENCY, THEN IT IS A DANGEROUS CONDITION THAT REQUIRES A RECALL. WHEN THE POWER STEERING GOES OUT COMPLETELY AND WITHOUT WARNING, AND YOU'RE ON THE EXPRESSWAY OR A ROAD WITH CURVES, A SERIOUS TRAFFIC ACCIDENT IS BOUND TO OCCUR.
