Sonata 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The insulated piece of tubing that covers a small portion of the power steering line should be replaced with a breathable type of product. My power steering fluid is leaking and it is not due to wear and tear on the vehicle. That portion of insulation on the power steering line retains moisture, therefore it causes that portion of the power steering line to rust and the fluid leaks out. This seems to be a manufacturing defect especially when the car has only 59,200 miles on it. Every two days I put in power steering fluid until I get an answer in reference to the warranty. This line has to be replaced.
