Loss of Power Steering
Just purchased a pre owned 2017 Pacifica Touring L 6 days ago. The van has 26,000 moles on it. Today, while driving down I-70 at approximately 70mph the van suddenly lost power steering, and the display showed; “Power steering unavailable. Service immediately.” Then moments later, the power steering came back. And, approximately 5 minutes later the power steering went out again. And, then a few minutes later it came back on. We dropped the vehicle off at the nearest service center. But, the service people looked perplexed when I told them what happened. So, we’ll see how it goes. My fiance’ who is 32 weeks pregnant was driving the van, and with my two year old son in the van also when this occurred. At 70 mph, on a notoriously busy interstate, surrounded by semi trucks. So, I’m really worried about her driving the van with the kids now. We just spent all this money on a van, thinking we it would be a good, safe vehicle for our family. Fingers crossed.
