problem #1

Mar 012001


  • miles
While driving at any given speed and making a turn to left, car doesn't turn left. Then, when turning wheel slightly more, vehicle will make a sharp turn to left, causing vehicle to get out of the intended lane towards various objects, which could result in a crash if hitting left wall of freeway. To prevent a crash, consumer must "force" wheel to right because it will not correct itself if just letting go. This defect occurs every time consumer turns vehicle to left, and is especially bad during wet conditions. Please provide any additional information/attachments.
