Hydraulic Power Steering

Your vehicle has hydraulic power steering. It may require maintenance. See Power Steering Fluid Power Steering Fluid on page 10‑27.

If power steering assist is lost because the engine stops or the power steering system is not functioning, the vehicle can be steered but may required increased effort. See your dealer if there is a problem.

If the vehicle is a hybrid, see the hybrid supplement for more information.
