 Description of the problemThe first sign of a problem was a squeaking sound coming from the steering column. The next couple of times powering on the car, the steering wheel would jerk as soon as the car received power. This jerking became progressively worse. The next couple of starts, the steering wheel would vibrate violently when backing up and starting to move forward. Finally, it got to a point where, as i was driving away, the powering steering just became disabled. I was unable to drive the car and the info panel was reporting a major system failure in the steering. I was informed after an initial inspection by the dealership that a fuse had blown. After a longer period of time, i was told that the ecu had gone bad and needed to be replaced. *jb
