 Description of the problemEps light came on the dash and i immediately lost all power steering. The vehicles steering became so stiff it was extremely difficult to steer the car. Someone with less strength like a young lady or older person would be in grave danger of crashing, anyone for that matter - i have found out that the systems is totally integrated. There is a module that has failed but can not be replaced on it's own. The entire steering column has to be replaced for about $2500. 00. The light went off after i shut the car off and stayed off for a for several weeks then without warning came back on again and the power steering was gone. This continued to happen several more times until the light remained on. When this happens it is very dangerous. It can happen anytime at any speed. I contacted hyundai to no satisfaction and now must spend $2500. 00 to replace the entire steering column without knowing how long it will last and if i will crash the next time it happens. I would be shocked if this has not caused any accidents. If your going to use an integrated brake system it should be reliable and safe !!
