I have had this problem before after receiving my car for repair after an accident. I drive about 45min-to an hour, one way to school and again back home, and the road I take has long, sweeping turns where this problem is very noticeable. When I brought the vehicle back last time and brought this problem to their attention, they did a general service on it that included power steering fluid replacement/fill up; doing this fixed the steering for a while. I've watched several shows and seen that when vehicles have "notchiness" in the steering, it's power-steering related. The car has about 126k miles on it but is not close to another due service. The feeling is like the steering is somewhat slack for 1/8-to-1/4 inch in rotation from center in both directions, then I'm met with resistance that is a bit difficult to push past to make a sharper corner, or pull back to straighten out. I've tested at slower speeds, but it doesn't show up doing city driving--just highway driving. I'm just wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem and if you were able to have it fixed in the long term (over 6 months to a year). The repair was made back in October 2013 (last year), so it's been doing fine since then until yesterday.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

My Ridge is fine so far, but my 06 Tacoma had the same problem. Two different shops (one a toyo dealer) said it was the rack. Replaced it with aftermarket faile in 4 mnths. Shortly after I had me intermediate steering shaft replaced and that fixed it. Traded the toyo for a ridge, happy day!
