Customer Question


We have a 09 reg Sportage 2WD 25000 miles. My wife has twice reported to me apparent PAS failure. The first time we deduced she had actually stalled (while braking down a steep country lane). She lost assistance to the brakes as well by the sound of it....

But the PAS falure has just recurred (briefly) but no question of a stall of of servo failure BUT this time she mentioned (when I asked) that perhaps she did hear a slight screech which I thought may well be a slipping belt. Car is in as new condition. Any thoughts please before I take her into the dealer (car not wife!).
