Urgent: Steering Failure
I was just out of town for 4 weeks (unexpected family emergency), left my '06 Pontiac G6 in the apartment complex parking lot (outside), and when I returned yesterday, I started the car, it started right up, but when I put the car in reverse, that's when my nightmare started. It was impossible to steer, and it took about 5 minutes just to get it back in the right space from a few feet away. It's almost as if the steering is locked up. It also displayed a "Power Steering" warning.
When I returned home (I live in Chicago), I was planning on packing up my belongings and driving from Chicago to Charlotte on Tuesday to start my new job which begins on the 14th. I need to get this fixed as soon as possible, so I can drive safely 14 hours away through the mountains in a few days. I purchased the car in '08, it only has 55,000 miles on it, and I've never had steering issues prior to this. Anyone know what is causing the steering failure and what I should do so I don't have to spend an arm and a leg (pun intended) before my trip on Tuesday? Thanks in advance!
