problem #1

Feb 092003

Tracker 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,000 miles
On the approach to a toll plaza, @ 30mph experienced total loss of steering. Resulting in a crach. The left front tire turned in causing left rear side of vehicle to turn into a concrete barrier wall. No other vehicles were involved due to the time of day (4:30am) it was found that the "knuckle" joint which controls the steering linkage broke in half resulting in an accident with damage of over $5,000. There has been a front end noise with this vehicle since I purchased it. Dealership unable to locate it...or determine the source on several occasions. Documented on their computer at the dealeship.
