    Hi everyone, I can hardly turn the steering wheel of my Touareg in the morning (especially after a cold night). It feels like there is no power steering at all. Once the engine has warmed up (after 10-15 minutes), the power steering is back to normal. I had the car in VW dealership twice, so...

  9. Power steering comes and goes

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi everyone. I own a 2007 V6 Treg, had it since new. From about 5000km onwards the power steering started acting up. On occasions it would feel very heavy on low speed. This problem came and went and followed no observable pattern whatsoever. I have been to the dealership more times than I can...
