    I have a 2007 GS with the 2.4 liter engine, 132K miles. My son is the primary (only) driver of this car and it died on him on the highway yesterday. He claims the steering "locked up" but I assume he just means it got hard to steer after the loss of power steering. We were a few miles from home...
