when going through average size puddle, serpentine belt came off. this disables all steering control and alternator/coolant system, etc. this is definitely a safety issue. have replaced belt myself numerous times. failure of tensioner and 2 other pulleys eventually needed at cost of $300+. waiting for it to happen again... i see this is an ongoing problem. *tr

when will chrysler do a recall on power steering lines, pumps, etc. my son is 16 and has only been driving for a few months. he almost lost control of our vehicle because the power steering froze and he couldn't turn! luckily he was smart enough to just park it, and we had it towed. the power steering lines broke (again) ! the mechanic said there are 173 people on the waiting list for a power steering line. doesn't this suggest this is a problem? i have had to add power steering fluid to my vehicle since the day i purchased it. i have replaced water pumps, bushings, links, and continue to have problems with the power steering. will they wait until enough people have died from losing control of their vehicle? i don't even feel safe having my son take this vehicle is it can happen without any advanced warning! what are they thinking? check out this website - 73 comments on the power steering issue: townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f172b27. by the looks of it this has been going on for a while. i am not the only one...but if something happens to my son - it will be too late! *cw
