 Description of the problemI was driving home from work when my eps light came on and my power steering completely went out. At a stop light i turned my car off and turned it back on. The light went off and the power steering was restored. A couple of minutes later the light came back on and the steering again went out. I was on a busy street and was very nervous when attempting to turn. When i made it home i looked in the owner's manual and it stated if the eps light came on during normal operation to take it to the dealer. I drove the car to the nearest hyundai dealer and left it overnight. The next morning i was informed that my entire steering column/eps motor had to be replaced and the cost was $2,400. My car is just over 5 years old and only has 49,000 miles on it. To have to replace something this major, this early in the life of the car, was a huge shock to me. When researching the matter online i saw multiple examples of the same exact thing happening to other owners of the 2009 hyundai elantra. I asked the dealer if there was a recall for this and they informed me there was not. This is very troubling to me as something as serious as losing your steering unexpectedly is a huge safety hazard and needs to be remedied.
