Power Steering



Im hoping someone can help me out. My Dad has asked me to do a bit of digging about to try and find out about a problem he's having with his Micra. As he's scared of computers it was up to me to find a forum and this one looks like a good place to start.

His Micra is a 54 plate 1.2 and he has had a few issues with the electric power steering - mainly that it has stopped working on 2 occassions now! He's a driving instructor so not only does this cause massive inconvenience but also loses him money on lessons that he has to cancel. The main dealer have denied that its a manufacturing fault and have asked my dad to pay for it on both occassions as the mileage puts it outside of warranty.

What I'd like to know is whether anyone has had any similar problems with the power steering or is my dad just unlucky?
