Power Steering Pump Failure
Hi All, I have 2007 Alfa 159 1.9 JtDM that I have had from new.
It was serviced by dealer as required last service being 54K miles a couple of weeks back.
Yesterday started getting grinding noise at low speed when turning and vibrations through steering wheel at same time.
When I got home an popped the bonnet there was the telltale bubbles of fluid around the PAS Reservior.
Took it in to the garage this morning and they have just called to advise needs a new PAS pump!
Should it really fail after just 54K miles over 3 and a half years - It is not like it has been driven hard or anything, mostly motorway/dual carriageway miles.
Would it be worth me complaining to AR UK?
Thoughts would be appreciated.
