Find a straight and level road with little or no traffic to safely run a few driving tests such as:
When driving straight ahead, can you let go of the wheel without the car drifting off-course? Many refer to this a “pull,” as in “It pulls to the right or left.”
When you make a turn, will the steering wheel return by itself to normal position or must you manually straighten the direction? This is sometimes called “sticky steering.”
Is there a looseness in the “feel” of the steering wheel? Does it seem that you must turn the wheel too far before the car responds?
When driving straight ahead, does it take conscious effort to keep your car driving straight?
Does the wheel feel unusually stiff? If power steering fluid is leaking, you may be manually turning the wheel without the power assist.
Are you hearing new noises in your car as you drive? Tiny squeals could be a simple slipping belt, but squeals, knocks and hisses should be investigated and scheduled for repair.
Do your tires show signs of uneven wear?
