 Description of the problemA steady "eps" light came on my hyundai elantra 2009. The first time this happened was about 9/2018. There were no noticeable malfunctions while driving. A few weeks later, however, the light started flashing when i started the car, and when trying to reverse from driveway, the steering wheel became very hard and i initially could not turn it. When i turned the car off and on, i was able to move the wheel and the light went off. However, a week of two later, i was driving on the highway when the light came on again, this time flashing, and the steering wheel kind of got stuck. I could hardly handled it. That situation was very scary. Then, the light became steady, and i was able to steer the wheel without difficulty. But last week, i was driving on the highway, and same thing happened -the steering wheel became too hard to turn. On 12/15/2018, i took the car to hyundai service and a diagnosis was done (paid $128. 00 refundable only if repairs were needed and done at their shop). My car has 79,909 miles, but i told it is no longer under warranty because it is past 60k miles). The diagnosis was an "internal failure of motor driven power steering motor," which would cost $2,188. 21 to repair. This car had been recalled twice for power steering issues (recall 127 electronic power steering software and campaign "elantra and sonata steering coupling". In searching the internet, i have found multiple complaints about power steering malfunctions on 2009 hyundai elantra and later models, as well as other hyundai vehicles, which had also involved malfunctions while driving on the highway. This is a very serious, life-threatening malfunction, which should be promptly investigated. I hope hyundai and brand/maker vehicles with this problem are recalled and repaired before a life is lost due to this malfunction.
