Illustration for article titled How my first day back from the rally began

Last month my car was having power steering issues, there was virtually no power steering when the rpm was low (slow corners, parking lots, etc). Took it in to the shop, they replaced the pump and the belts, which fixed the problem.


Fast forward to last week and the problem came back. Low RPM, no power steering. I nursed it through the rally trip and back home, and made an appointment for tomorrow.

Turns out she was feeling impatient. The belt snapped on the way in to work this morning, mid-corner. I’m interested in seeing what the shop says the culprit is. The belts were new, the pump was new, the rack was replaced back in August.
