Tell me how you check the power-assisted steering is working before starting a journey

If the steering becomes heavy, the system may not be working properly.

Before starting a journey, 2 simple checks can be made:
1. Gentle pressure on the steering wheel, maintained while the engine is started, should result in a slight but noticeable movement as the system begins to operate
2. Alternatively turning the steering wheel just after moving off will give an immediate indication that the power assistance is functioning
