 Description of the problemHad car in shop for power steering / eps light issue on 3/21/14 (81431 miles). They did an update #c1290 to recalibrate the esp and had to do a front wheel alignment too. The power steering went out again while i was on a busy road around 4pm. I took it back to the hyundai dealership on 4/8/14 and they re-did the update #c1290. They told me that it is an electrical 'shortage' causing the problem and i would need to replace the entire steering column shaft assembly - costing $1600. I saved up the money and called to get the work done (5/8/14) and the price went up to $1920 now!!!! They told me they can put in a used steering column for $350 - but would only guarantee the work/part for 90 days. Meanwhile i am driving without power steering causing more injury to my arms and neck and very difficult to drive & dangerous in traffic. The sonata was recalled for the same issues.... Why won't they recall the elantra's also?
