So a co-worker of mine was driving his car (XC60) to work when the belt to the servopump and generator snaped. Well I guess lots of warning lights when on. But he is one of those guys that thinks "as long as it's driveable I can continue". A couple of miles later the power was almost drained in the battery so when he was going of the highway on to a offramp it turned out he had no brakes and it was almost impossible to steer the car nearly missing a lorry. He had to put the feets hard down to the floor and use almost his whole bodyweight to be able to steer the car he was really lucky to get to the shop to get his car fixed with out crashing it. This is crazy, I mean I lost the servopump on my 1988 Citroen BX and still I had no problem steering and beaking. Is it really legal to have cars that get almost uncontroleble when the battery goes flat?
