I am asking this question for my sister-in-law who is a college student (and does not have too much disposable income). She bought a 1999 toyota corolla VE with 95000 miles.
today the car required extra effort to turn the steering wheel. She took it to a firestone and was told that the power steering pump and pulley needed to be replaced and given an estimate for $1200.
the car is about 80 miles from home and she would like to drive it home and see if she can get a cheaper estimate.
is the car safe to drive with this problem? The towing bill for this distance is probably a couple of hundred dollars.
