Power steering is electric......no belt to slip.

If you can get it to make this sound, idleing with the hood up, pull the dipstick and see if it changes or disappears.
Your description is approaching that of a dry crank seal on the damper side (belt side).

The dealer is instructed to replace the crank seal and inspect the check valve in the intake manifold.
If the valve is stuck (can't be seen through the port) the manifold is to be replaced as well.

Thanks, Ill try that next time I get the chance! Good to know info..hopefully not the case though, as that would be pretty .. disappointing to say the least.
If the components mentioned are the cause of the noise they are covered under your 5yr 100k powertrain warranty.
Things fail.....thats why guys like me get to make a living.
