Q: IS IT SAFE TO DRIVE WHEN THE EPS LIGHT BIS ON??

asked by on

Was driving the car when EPS light lit, yes the steering became heavy/tight.... but can it be driven a good 25 miles back to my mechanic.

My car has 15000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

I really can’t tell you that YES it is or NO it is not safe to drive. But I would say that if the steering does not feel right, it would be a safer option to have it towed.
