Steering wheel freezing, locking in turns....Any ideas

Asked by Sep 13, 2019 at 09:38 AM about the 2016 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While driving in turns (not necessarily sharp turns) my steering will randomly lock. (Goes straight while I am attempting to turn). Thankfully, it only lasts a few seconds and releases. I am estimating my speed between 45 and 55.
I now think it is doing it during straight drives (4 lane hwy going about 65-70). But I could be over sensitive and looking for a problem. There are no sounds that are typical to power steering going out.

My car has already been in the shop (Nissan) for a week and they can't recreate the problem. Any ideas?
