Car lost all power steering during a gentle u turn at 5 mph. Verdict was a torn power steering pump/hose. New part required. About 3 months later steering is still a lil sluggish and squeaks when car is not moving fast.

Car demonstrated poor acceleration for a turbo at 35mph. Car started doing a hissing sound every time accelerating. Mechanic says turbo on car may be damaged, diagnostic time would cost over $800. Declined service. Car became quite bumpy and making a clunk sound over even light bumps. Mechanic thinks car would require work on either or all of bushings, control arms, and sway bar links. Estimated cost of $1200. He recommends trade into dealer.
