Power assisted steering fluctuates. Sometimes it works. It may start or stop working at any time, and is inconsistent.

Steering wheel heater stopped working. Dealer wants 1100 to replace. After reading many forums this seems to be a common problem.

Tilt steering failed to lower steering column in proper driving position. The power motor unit failed and it caused the steering column to stay in the highest position, making it unsafe to drive. The dealer replaced the motor assembly and it corrected the problem.
