 Description of the problemIn the last 2 weeks, the eps light has come on my dashboard 3 times, accompanied by the power steering failing. The first time it happened, i was in the middle of an intersection, turning left, and my power steering failed. The second time i was in my driveway, luckily not yet pulled out into the busy street on which i live. The third time was just today on the highway, and as i was going 65 mph, the power steering failed. The only way i've found to "fix" it is to turn off my car and start it again. Had i been going over the bridge near my house where there is no shoulder to pull onto where i could restart my engine, today i would have been unable to steer around the curves of the highway. This is not just a minor problem. This is a safety liability on the part of the manufacturer and needs to be addressed. I have read about many other people with the same car having this issue and hyundai doing nothing about it. So far, only a handful of 2015 sonatas have been recalled for the exact same issue, but nothing has been done about the elantras. I have contacted hyundai regarding this, and they say that my vin is not part of a recall, even though it clearly has the same problem as the recalled sonatas occurring repeatedly, and therefore i must absorb the cost of whatever it will take to remedy this problem. Again, this is a liability on hyundai's part, and they should be responsible for fixing it at no cost to the consumer. Thank you for your time.
