power steering tight to the right loose to left?

Read many threads on problems with the power steering and wanted to ask a quick Question. It doesn't sound like this is the problem they sent letters out for ( we didnt get one.)
My wifes car is harder to turn right then left. I just noticed this yesterday. We have not had the lock up issues. it is a 2006 g6 with 3.5l.

Is this the power steering going bad?

Thanks in advance.

Yes your power steering is going bad, and I am pretty sure yours is electronic instead of hydrollic with power assist. Be careful driving it, you never know when it could decide to go to the locking up stage.

After reading all the problems we decided to trade it in instead of repair.. I gave it a great recon over the weekend before I noticed the problem. Got 7k for it well above kbb.

Got a 2008 mazda 3 s grand touring , 29,000 on the odometer. Thanks for the reply.
