2007 Kia Sportage Owner Comments

When driving in rainy weather, I will loose power steering after driving over a puddle. The battery light will come on and my power steering will go off. It comes back after a minute or so, but when it goes out, the vehicle becomes very difficult to control.

It started Feb 22nd, 2010 when a sensor on the power steering pump broke and I had power steering fluid leaking all over the engine and my steering locked up. Kia of redding replaced the pump @ 59K miles. Then on July 9th, same thing happened as steering locked up in traffic in eureka, had to have it towed 175 miles back to redding Kia. Had around 73K miles on it. Car returned after fixing same issue from Feb. On July 16th. On July 17th after less than 100 miles, Kia power steering locked up again in traffic in redding. Same problem fixed again and car returned on July 26th. On July 30th, car making whining noise from power steering pump, brought into dealership to be looked at and have oil changed. Mechanic "fixed" the noise, changed oil, said was good to go. Drove car less than 50 miles and again steering locked up on curvey mountain road. Had the car towed back to the shop for the 4th time in less than 21 days. Car is just at 78K miles now.
