power steering

Does my 2012 Grand Cherokee have electric power steering? It's a Laredo X with the 3.6 engine.

Re: power steering

Yes, sort of. Its Hydro electric. It uses an electric pump instead of a pulley on the engine to pressurize the power steering system. If you open your hood and look straight down the front of the engine, you'll see it mounted there.

Re: power steering

Thanx TI. I sort of thought that was the case but I wasn't sure.
