On three occasions within the past twelve months, I have completely lost power steering while driving. The wheel becomes almost unmovable (I am a strong, adult male). On one of these occasions, the weather was damp and the engine also stalled. Fortunately I was able to muscle and coast the car onto the shoulder where I was able to restart the car and drive away. On the remaining two occasions I was driving at 65 mph on the interstate when the power steering ceased to work. Terrifying and deadly. Latest event was May 9, 2018.
