The car seems fine whilst driving but when parking the car when you make hard turns it makes a mooing sound. It's electric steering according to the mechanic and the noise he says is the electric sound and compared it to a mini. He says there's nothing wrong with the car (he is part of the same company as the sales garage). However, it doesn't sound like the high electric whine of a mini and more like a groaning/mooing noise. It doesn't sound like the noise it should be making. We are worried that the steering will fail or be costly and we have just bought the car.

Yep, if you can upload a short video of the noise, I can tell for sure what's going on, but I think you are right, the electric motor for the steering is going out. They don't want to replace it because it is expensive. Can you kind of tell where the noise is coming from? Underneath the car or dash or?
