Electric power steering

The electric power steering system will give you good vehicle response and increased ease of maneuverability in tight spaces. The system will vary its assist to provide light efforts while parking and good feel while driving. If the electric steering system experiences a fault that prevents it from providing assist, you will still have the ability to steer the vehicle manually.

Alternate electric power steering efforts can be selected through the Uconnect System. Refer to "Customer Programmable Features" within "Uconnect Settings" in "Understanding Your Instrument Panel" for further information.

WARNING! Continued operation with reduced assist could pose a safety risk to yourself and others. Service should be obtained as soon as possible.

  •  Even if the power steering assistance is no longer operational, it is still possible to steer the vehicle.Under these conditions there will be a substantial increase in steering effort, especially at low speeds and during parking maneuvers.
  •  If the condition persists, see your authorized dealer for service.
