Hi

Ive just bought a 2012 antara which is automatic.
It reaches 30mph and starts to make odd noises. I drive an automatoc work car and the antara sounds so different. It sounds like its struggling to change gear and revs quite high. Any ideas?
Also, the EPS light keeps coming on when driving. Any thoughts?

As a first step you need to get the level of the automatic transmission fluid checked. If the level is OK then check the colour of the fluid, it should be red so if it's brown or black - and especially if it smells burnt - then you should change it.

EPS usually means Electric Power Steering but the Antara has hydraulic-assist. See this other thread for possible clues although it was inconclusive at the end. <!--if gte mso 9>
