There was a groaning noise coming from the brakes, when the vehicle was at a complete stop but idling. There was also a burning smell coming from the air vents. Upon inspection of the vehicle by the dealership the steering pump and pressure line had ruptured. The dealership indicated it was caused by the power steering fluid being contaminated.
