Power Steering

The standard power steering system will give you good vehicle response and increased ease of maneuverability in tight spaces. The system will provide mechanical steering capability if power assist is lost.

If for some reason the power assist is interrupted, it will still be possible to steer your vehicle. Under these conditions, you will observe a substantial increase in steering effort, especially at very low vehicle speeds and during parking maneuvers.

The power steering system is speed sensitive for light steering effort during slow speed parking maneuvers, and gradually increases the steering effort as vehicle speed increases to provide a tighter/more sporty steering response.

Continued operation with reduced or no power steering assist could pose a WARNING!

Continued operation with reduced or no power steering assist could pose a safety risk to yourself and others. Service should be obtained as soon as possible.
