Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

The Air-O-Matic Power Steer Division of R.F.F. Engineering (International) Co Ltd has opened a national installation centre for fitting Air-O-Matic air-power steering to all types of commercial vehicles.

The system can be installed in one day on any make of British or European vehicle at a standard cost of £280 (plus VAT).

Air-O-Matic, an American power steering system, uses air as the power medium and has a number of advantages over conventional systems using oil.

It is claimed that because air is used, it is possible to sense more precisely the amount of assistance needed. This means that irrespective of varying loads and speeds, the amount of assistance provided varies constantly from zero (manual) to maximum for manoeuvring in close quarters and the driver retains full road "feel" at all times.

Because the equipment automatically adjusts for changes in speed and load, it is considered by the company to be particularly suitable for fitting to tractive units.

In the event of a failure, full manual control is instantly available and the braking system is fully protected by a safety valve.
