 Description of the problemI brought my 2009 elantra (driven less than 42,000 miles) to a local hyundai dealership mid july because eps was light on and i had been notified of a recall pertaining to the power steering system. The recall was reported addressed through software reset/update and eps light was off when i picked the car back up. Earlier this month the eps light came back on and i noted a brief clicking/knocking sound with temporary increased resistance as i turned the steering wheel in either direction both while moving or at a stop. The car was reassessed at the dealership aug 23rd, i was told that an "internal failure of steering column" had been identified and that i would need to replace the full steering assembly for an estimated $2,244. 40. I asked for further details regarding the failure and was informed that the steering coupler needs replacement but also that the "hologram sensor" has malfunctioned, necessitating a full steering assembly replacement, and that this is unrelated to the previously serviced power steering recall. I have not had the repair yet but am warned that the car is at risk of unpredictable power steering failure.
