EA99011-erratic power steering assist. While driiving vehicle goes down a straight road, hits a slight bump, causing the tension in the steering column to release, which results in loss of control. However, the same problem is more intensified when going around curves. Within the past month, the vehicle has been at the dealership 3 times for this problem. The steering sensor / steering box have been replaced. Consumer is still experiencing similar problems.
