EDIT: power steering fine, its the rack an pinion that have gone bad! 9 miles left on warrenty...woohoo!

interesting and unsettling that the 07s are having so many issues...
I just dropped mine off at dealer(9miles left on factory warrenty) cuz my power steering was just gone last night. SMALL red puddle on the garage floor, so i figured it needed fluid. I added some before i set off this morning, and it didn't help. So i manhandled it the 3.5 miles to the dealer. By the time i got there i was leaking something dark, alomost looked like oil but was a little lighter in color for both the left and right sides of the engine bay. really weird. I'll let yall know what it turns out to be, but damn.

Oh, ok. At least they were able to get the parts, national back orders seem to be a problem lately.
