I was stooped at a red light on a hill when the light turned green all lights in car turned on the brakes went out and the steering wheel locked. I was on a hill and almost crashed into a wall. I had no control over the car. Don't know how this happened. I was able to mange and pull to the side of the curve. I turned the car on and off a few times and the car went back to normal. I was very lucky i didn't crash into the wall or another car. This was at a busy intersection and i could have kiiled myself or and someone else. I have not driven the car since only my husband because im very scared. Today the malfunction light come on and we don't know if this is related. We called chrysler and explained the situation but they can only schedule an appointment to see the car on 5/17/2021. This is a very serious issue and im surprised they wont see the car right away. And told us to wait another 5 days. I don't trust this car until it gets checked.

I was driving on city streets and steering became very difficult. Turning corners at slow speed was very tough and jerky. Control of the car was very difficult the slower the speed. Highway wasn't too bad but you it still took more effort than was normally expected/experienced. Firestone service noted a opening in the upper steering shaft. They spray lubricated the shaft and it appears to be back to normal, but since there the shaft is open to weathering this is not a permanent fix.

Power steering failure. Truck was moving at approximately 20mph while turning through an intersection. Could not make it through the intersection. Dealership says 2 components are bad: the? Steering angle sensor?. And the? Steering gear torque sensor.? The torque sensor is subject to nhtsa recall #21v213, but the? Angle sensor? Is apparently not subject to any recall yet. Truck is not driveable without both being fixed.

Backed it out of the garage to go somewhere, got on the main road and it was wondering with a lot of play in the steering wheel, next hit a bump in the road and the front wheels started shaking uncontrollably until i slowed to under 40 mph, hit another road seam and it did the same thing. Took it to the mechanic, he diagnosed it as a failed steering box. Truck only has 27,500 miles on it. Never seen a dirt road, not driven in the winter. $1700. 00 later its fixed. Many complaints about this on the internet and gmc has not recalled these trucks for this problem they know about. Has soured my trust in their brand.

While driving my 2015 ford transit 250 3. 5 on the interstate the van lost power and nearly got my killed while trying to navigate off the road without power. The throttle body code was thrown on the cpu, and i was told by the mechanic that these need to be replaced way more than normal with these fords. It? S a hazard to shut the vehicle down without warning! And the replacement part is still faulty. The throttle bodies need to be recalled.

When traveling over 60-65mph on a highway i notice the vehicle pulling one way or another. Feels as if the steering wheel is too loose and the tires are too easily swayed right or left. Feels as though i have minimal control of the vehicle and have to concentrate on keeping the wheel straight. Also shaky when the vehicle is idling

2021 Jeep WRANGLER

Purchased 1/3/2021. Steering wander, pulls to right, and 2? Dead zone in steering wheel. Dead zone has no tire resistance in the steering wheel. Always a need to keep a tension on the wheel to prevent going to the right. Maiden voyage up the az 87 mountain freeway and second time up and down the twisty 87 freeway in arizona several times constant wandering. A couple of times it felt as if i was about to loose control of the jeep at 65mph. Immediately i slowed down below the speed limit. I am very familiar with this freeway. Jeep pulls to the right even from the left lane. You can see the steering wheel turn a few degrees to the right as the jeep emblem is not center on. There are times in the dead spot you move the wheel back and forth 2? And it? S no response. Some times the dead zone is almost 2? On the wheel and sometimes it? S less. Dealer aligned after axle replacements under warranty and then 5/10/21 aligned again. Was returned to me saying it still pulls. I took it out and it still was off, brought it back and they aligned twice again and it still pulls to the right. Due to go back again 5/13/2021, tech calling fca. That will make 20 days in the shop within first 127 days of ownership. Mileage 3200. Pulling is noticeable on pavement over 40 mph and gets more pronounced the faster you drive and on freeways.

My 2018 f250 has the ford death wobble as people describe it. This seems to be a reoccurring event. This friday may 14th 2021 it will go into the dealership for the third time to be fixed. The last time it was in was 04/09/21 for the same exact problem. The death wobble consist of violent shaking of the front end when hitting a bump in the road while traveling above 50 mph. We must brake immediately and slow down to regain control of vehicle. This is extremely dangerous, not only for the shaking but slowing down that quickly on the interstate. This has happened while hauling a 35 ft camper as well. Today i was told by the dealership that ford says this is a one time fix. The moist recent time this death wobble happened was 05/06/21 while driving to louisville ky. It happened six times on the way down and once on the way home.

I filed a complaint about this vehicle in october of 2020 when it was 5 months old at that time because it would slam on breaks and jerk the steering wheel for no known reason and with no one around. It has continued to do this intermittently as well as other erratic driving that cant be accounted for including at times getting confused when passing exit ramps where the car will slam on breaks and jerk to try to exit. I was driving this afternoon at highway speeds and the steering wheel began to shimmy (vibrating back and forth). It felt like there was a potnetial tire blow out but my tpms did not indicate any loss of pressure. I assumed the car was having another one of its unexplained steering behaviors. I know from previous experience that turning the blinker on will stop the shimmying if it thinks you are trying to switch lanes so i turned my blinker on and i moved over one lane hoping it would stop. The shimmying (vibrating of steering wheel) continued and shortly there after it pulled hard left on me driving me directly into a cement barricade that was located a few feet off of the side of the road. I hit the barricade at highway speed and bounced off of it spun around and re-hit the barricade with the rear of the car which is what sustained the majority of the damage when it hit. Though i hit the barricade with significant force the airbags did not deploy. My daughter has been in the car with me on a previous occasion when the car has done this and i have complained about it numerous times to numerous people. I do not feel safe in this car... It only does this at highway speeds and on the highway... It will kill me or someone else if something is not done. I have contacted honda cooperate and also filed a report with them as well.

While reversing out of a parking space on 5/10/2021 the car would not turn while the wheel was being turned. Instead of turning, the car was driven straight out until there was enough room to go forward. Once in drive mode, there were no additional steering issues.
