Complaint - Steering

ABOUT EIGHTY MILES/TWO DAYS PRIOR TO THE FAILURE, AN INTERMITTENT WHINE/HUMMING NOISE WAS HEARD IN THE VICINITY OF THE DRIVER SIDE DASH AREA WHILE TURNING AT SLOW SPEEDS. I WAS TOLD THIS WAS NOT UNUSUAL AS THE POWER STEERING IS ELECTRICALLY ASSISTED AND THE ELECTRIC MOTOR WAS LIKELY MAKING THE NOISE. TWO DAYS AFTER THE FIRST SOUNDS, THE POWER STEERING FAILED UPON ENGINE START. THE STEERING WHEEL IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TURN NOW.
