 Description of the problemI was returning home one evening home about a week ago, and i was trying to parking my car in parking lot when the esc light appeared on dash board and the steering wheel locked. I could not park the car, so i put it in park and pulled out the car manual, after reading it, i turned the ignition off and then turn it back on. The esc light went out and the steering was back and i was then able to park the car. The next day it happened twice before i was able to get on the highway and the only way i could correct it each time was turning off the ignition. At one point someone was coming out of a parking space and i had to try and move out of the way with the steering wheel locked. I was scared and praying, that i get home safely. I took the car home and haven't driven it since. Towed car to dealer and was told it needed a new power steering column and total cost with labor and tax was over $3,000. 00 and not covered in the power train warranty. The car is barely used how could that be? They are dealers selling lemons as new cars. This car is just over 5 years old, no one should have to pay out that type of money to replace parts so early in the life of the car. There should be a recall this is a dangerous problem and others are having the same issue with this make and model.
