Steering swoosh sound when turning 0+mph

My daughters 2008 G6 makes this swoosh squishy sound when turning either direction. We are in Michigan, cold temps and it feels like it is linkage related, like in between column and tie rod ends but probably closer to the column. Steering isnít loosey-goosey at all, car has 100k miles. No other symptoms. Fluid okay, no pump noise either. Any ideas?
Thanks!

It's probably just the electric power steering. You will lose control if the alternator dies

Thanks for the feedback. I see a lot of people on here have issues with the electric power steering (EPS). It sounds very mechanical though, once you hold the steering wheel in the desired position it is quiet, it's only during the turning process. If anyone else has experienced this or has ideas let me know. Is it difficult or expensive to change out the EPS?

It's electronic but you could always start by checking your power steering fluid!
