You can contact our Ford Customer Service representative if you have problems with your dealer fixing the car. I don't think you will. It seems to me that your problem is a complete failure. The only problem might be waiting for parts.

Electric steering = really bad idea. All manufacturers are having problems with electric steering right now. IMO they would've been better off to do like what Toyota did with the old MR2s (Volvo did it too)- put an electric motor turning a power steering pump.
