problem #3

Vision 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles
Complete loss of steering control. I was entering a parking garage when power-assisted rack and pinion failed, completely disengaging the steering wheel from the front wheels. Due to slow speed, no crash occurred.

Steering very very loose and clunky, with much slop and resulting horrible tire wear. Unsafe to drive. There is no apparent damage to rack & pinion itself, it just becomes dangerously loose due to poorly designed mounting bushings. Mfr advises no bushings sold for replacement due to "molded design" (unlike previous models of same vehicle), mfr claims that only option is to purchase "entire rack and pinion ass'Y at $1,040 (parts only)" even though only failure is their mounting bushing design.

EA99031/steering system rack and pinion: While braking and turning into the driveway, vehicle lost control. Vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop, and informed that rack and pinion steering needed replacement. Dealer confirmed rack and pinion problem, repaired it at owner's cost. Manufacturer contacted, denies that defect exists.
