I own a 2004 MINICooper, the power steering pump completely stopped working without prior warning. We were on our way to eureka springs Arkansas when this happened, luckily my husband was the one driving, I don't even want to imagine what could have happened if it had been me. I don't think I would have been able to handle the car through those curves.
