FIRST INCIDENT HAPPENED IN APRIL OF 2014. PULLING OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY THE POWER STEERING WENT OUT. CALLED THE DEALERSHIP, MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK TO BRING MY CAR IN AND IT HAD ONLY HAPPENED ONCE AT LOW SPEEDS. POWER STEERING WENT OUT 2 MORE TIMES DURING THE DAY, CALLED THE DEALERSHIP BACK AND INFORMED THEM I WAS BRINGING MY CAR IN AT THAT MOMENT AS I FELT UNSAFE. ON MY WAY TO THE DEALERSHIP DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY, THE POWER STEERING GAVE OUT ON ME WHILE EXITING THE HIGHWAY GOING 75 MPH. I WAS ABLE TO GET OFF AND LUCKILY THE DEALERSHIP WAS RIGHT OFF THE EXIT. THE EPS LIGHT WAS ON AND IT THREW A CODE. THEY TOLD ME MY STEERING COLUMN WAS BAD. THEY REPLACED IT AND ALL WAS FINE. THEN I HAD AN ISSUE WITH MY FACTORY INSTALLED REMOTE START A FEW MONTHS LATER. THEY TOLD ME A CIRCUIT WAS BLOWN AND IT HAD TO BE REPLACED. NOW THIS YEAR (MAY OF 2015) I HAVE HAD THE REMOTE START AND THE POWER STEERING GO OUT ON ME ONCE AGAIN. MY CAR IS IN THE SHOP, WAS TOLD I NEEDED STEERING COLUMN REPLACED AGAIN. I REFUSED THIS ANSWER, AND THEY ARE DIGGING DEEPER AND HAVE FIGURED OUT THERE IS AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM WITH MY CAR. I HAVE HAD A LOANER CAR FOR 4 DAYS AND THEY STILL ARE NO CLOSER TO FIGURING OUT WHAT IS WRONG.
