2009 Hyundai ELANTRA Steering Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemPlease note that my vehicle has already been serviced at the dealership for nhtsa campaign 15v100000 (hyundai recall 127). While driving between 34-45 mph, i heard a subtle click from either my steering column or behind the dash, which was immediately followed by illumination of the eps warning light and complete loss of power steering assistance. The vehicle became very difficult to steer, and remained in this condition until i reached my destination , which was about another 30 minutes worth of driving time. I imagine that some younger/weaker drivers might not be able to physically steer the car while in this condition, but i was able to manage. The car was left in a parking lot for about 8 hours, at which point upon starting the engine, the eps warning light turned off and power steering was again fully functional. The dealership said my car had already been serviced for the power steering recall 127, and it would cost $120 to investigate. I did not bring the vehicle in for this diagnostic. The problem appears to be an intermittent problem, and has not yet recurred.
