if the steering shudders more and makes more noise when you turned to the max positions then it would be the power steering.

Time to visit the A.S.S to get the belts checked. But a replacement so early might not be the solution. Do check

I used to get a humming sound in my Linea.
One from the engine compartment & one near the driver external mirror.

For me, it turned out that by adjusting the bushes for the bonnet, resolved one issue.
The second one was the external rear view mirror was vibrating at certain rpms.

It also would do to check if there are any loose / semi loose components in or near the engine bay.

Hope this helps.

I visited the A.S.S toda and have left the car for service , they said there is oil leak from the power steering Unit and the alternator Belt has to be checked, could someone tell me why there would be a oil leak at such a early stage and what should i check further for.

I had a similar issue some time back. It showed my rear left door as being open even after multiple attempts. I could not lock my car manually as well as through remote. Took it to the service station and they replaced door latch and said it was broken. Are you able to lock the car?
