I just got my new XC60 back from the dealer and it had low Power Steering fluid (below the min). The dealer could not find anything wrong, no drips, nothing. Has anyone experienced this issue?

Re: Power Steering Fluid Low (rpwils)

A stupid question - do you know if it was full to begin with?<p><br>Stuff happens. The factory worker might not have enough in one bottle and forgot to top-off before the car moved to the next station?

not a stupid question. But yes, I checked all fluids prior to buying the car. Before and after a long test drive. <p>

Check the hoses if that's the case. <p>By the way, with reference to your post above about the test drive before you bought it, is yours a demo unit or brand-spanking new from the factory? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

A little birdy tells me that they are having leak issues with the steering racks. Worse yet, they can not get any spare parts just yet. I hope this is not the case.<p>

Re: Power Steering Fluid Low (volvogazz)

Confirmation back from the dealer today and it was a defective steering rack. They are back ordered and will be fixed in 4-5 days. I'm not positive but I thought they said there is a recall on them. I will follow-up with that and will let everyone know.
