Was this a sudden failure of the steering?
Has any parts of the steering control been checked upto now to see which parts failed?
Does the steering wheel still transfer movement down from the column to the joint/shaft that goes through the floor to steering rack do you know?
Hii.there sorry for the delayed responce..
Certainly sounds like a similar problem associated on Note models around 2008..there was recall on them with regards ***** ***** loss of steering..as detailed below..could be something to maybe bring up with the dealer to lookinot if this problem also effects this year too.For complete loss of any effort in steering would mean that something has come loose or worn or partically worn ina certain psotion. hence maybe a issue in the steering rack?..and by the sounds of what you have said the dealer has inspected all those..There isnt really any common known / safety issue flagged up as an issue with the steering problem you describe bar what ive mentioned above with reagrds to the recall but id say that all those effected vehicles will now be fixed as a result...I do hope this helps
