2011 Scion XB
  • Date of Incident: Jun-10, 2023
  • Date complaint filed: Jun-27, 2023
  • Failed components: STEERING

The steering becomes hard to control after being on the highway for around 40-60 mins. It is hard to keep the vehicle on track because the steering is "sticky" and it takes more force to keep the vehicle in its lane, hence we wander within the lane and appear to be either drunk or not in full control. The problem is intermittent but does occur at various degrees on any given day. We are afraid there will be an accident when we cannot control correctly.
