STEERING

I WAS STOPPED IN A LANE WAITING TO DO A MICHIGAN LEFT TURN, IN CITY TRAFFIC. THE ENGINE STUMBLED, A CHIME WENT OFF, AND I GOT AN ERROR MESSAGE "POWER STEERING ASSIST FAULT". THE ENGINE STALLED. I RE-STARTED THE VEHICLE AND HAD NO POWER STEERING. THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD COMPLETE THE TURN AND I HAD TO GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE (TEMPERATURE OF 14F) AND WAVE VEHICLES BEHIND ME AROUND ME. THE DEALER SAID THAT FORD KNEW ABOUT MARGINAL QUALITY PARTS AND WAS SELECTIVE ABOUT REPLACING THEM.
