I walked into a great shock earlier today. I noticed the power steering fluid levels down below the minimum in my Getz. This has never happened in the past 2 and half years of owning the car let alone the levels EVER going down below the full mark.The car is religiously serviced at the Hyundai Service center.
Anyway, so planned today to top up the fluid but wanted to be sure if there was no leaks. So first had gone to get my wheel alignment and rotation done and when the car was on the ramp, I noticed oil traces. So confirmed it was a leak.
Took it to Kun Hyundai and the car was raised on the ramp and I was told, Yes there is a leak. So I figured out it would be an oil seal issue or may be something minor.
To my horror, I was told the there is no oil seal but its the whole rack that has to be replaced. I was told the cost for would be 45k
I told them let me think over in a day or two and get it replaced but what struck me on my way back was is there no way of repairing it ? Is it just that A.S.S would replace only and not repair ?
Oh also to mention, my warranty expired and I did not go for an extended warranty
So guys - what do I do ? I'm prepared to get it replaced but I want to be sure if it cannot be repaired ?
