Hey James my 03 GT just lost it's power steering today! Just what I needed as I pulled into the Dentist's parking lot. Go it up to the dealer 30 miles no power steering, like driving a truck! The hose came off the PS cooler. They replaced the clip and fluid and away I went! I didn't even know that I had a power seering cooler!..
It\'s gone but not forgotten. Still love the Cruiser but my heart got stolen buy a Ruby Red 05 Legacy GT!

Lost mine a few months ago. I was out of the Chrysler warranty at the time but had an aftermarket warranty. Covered the price of a new pump, air-conditioning gases and labor all except the deductable. The pump went without warning and was told there was a nationwide shortage of pumps but my dealer managed to find one at another dealer 90 miles away.

I had a steering rack and a pump replaced at about 20,000. The rack was leaking internally and the pump bearing was noisy ... I'd say poor quality control.
