Power Steering: The power steering system in your car makes it easier for you to turn the steering wheel. Without this valuable device, it could take up to twice the amount of force to turn your vehicle. That could make steering your car hard or tiring for weaker individuals. Depending on your vehicle, power steering systems utilize all-electric, electric–powered hydraulics and mechanical hydraulic systems to amplify the power of your steering inputs. This makes it easier to turn on a dime, so get your power steering checked regularly to make sure it works properly.
