Hello, thank you for writing in. There are several reasons why your steering may have gotten hard. If there was low fluid, you have a leak that you will need to locate. When you locate that leak, you will find the issue. Considering the steering was still hard after you added fluid, you will want to look into the power steering pump. If it has failed, so will your assisted steering. They are generally easy to change once you have access, and are the most likely component to fail in the system. The system is driven by the drive belts, and you should also make sure they are in good condition. For more help resolving the issue, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
