The steering assist system turns on and off at will and makes the vehicle nearly inoperable and definetly a safefty issue.

The steering stops with no warning. It first happened in 2011 with 27,259 miles and the dealership replaced the power steering column/module assy. It is happening again. There is a recall, but the dealership said our car was not part of that recall and they couldn't get the code to come up so they did nothing! this last time, my young daughter was driving!

The steering wheel became hard to operate when I started it up and began to drive. This now happens on occasion when the vehicle is started. There is no way to know when it may get worse and fail during a turn or at high speed. I have seen many complaints of this same problem from this same make and model online.
