The contact owns a 2012 Mercedes Benz E350. While driving at approximately 55 mph, the steering wheel was very difficult to turn. The vehicle was towed to the dealer who diagnosed that the power steering assembly needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The contact also stated that while driving at various speeds, there was a loud banging noise coming from the subframe. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the failure was unable to be duplicated. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 1,000.

I attempted to start the car and it would not crank. I called Mercedes service and they sent service to jumpstart the car. The car finally started. As I began to drive, a warning light stating "power steering malfunction - check owners manual" came on. With considerable difficult, I avoided the curb in the parking lot and managed to get the car to a parking space. The "power steering malfunction" indicator would not come off even after turning the car off and on again. The car became undrivable.
