My wife and I each separately encountered issues with steering and brakes possibly not working as intended. First occurred in October I believe, only couple months into the lease. I was almost run off on a highway, as I swerved to get out of the way..I lost control and spun out(did 360) and hit the right shoulder barrier. I didn't think anything of it at the time. Chalked it up to bad luck. Then may of this year, my wife on highway, braked hard to avoid hitting traffic in front of her that had braked hard as well. Lost control of steering and again, did 360 spin and crashed into center divider. Now I'm a little leery, 2 incidents in less than 9 month span. Both times it seems that we should've not lost control.
