Steering

Your vehicle is equipped with an electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system. There is no fluid reservoir to check or fill.

If your vehicle loses electrical power while you are driving (or if the ignition is turned off), you can steer the vehicle manually, but it takes more effort. Under extreme usage conditions, the steering effort may increase. This occurs to prevent overheating and permanent damage to your steering system. If this should occur, you will neither lose the ability to steer the vehicle manually nor will it cause permanent damage.

Typical steering and driving maneuvers will allow the system to cool and steering assist will return to normal.

If the steering wanders or pulls, check for:

Х an improperly inflated tire.

Х uneven tire wear.

Х loose or worn suspension components.

Х loose or worn steering components.

Х improper steering alignment.

A high crown in the road or high crosswinds may also make the steering seem to wander/pull.
