Customer Question
I have a 2016...

I have a 2016 Legacy limited. The power steering stopped working after 5700 miles and is nor coming back after a whole night rest.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

No whing noise. The manual does not mention fluid at all.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Legacy yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I've not tried. I can add fluid but not more than that.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Do you charge for this service?
