  • Automatic transmission

Driving home from the lake and the wheel locked up and went into the ditch after we had it in Chrysler and it was not fixed. They took it in and gave it back and coming home from work the steering wheel locked up again and I almost hit 3 cars. So went back in to get fixed. Then I was out hunting and my kids were with and the steering wheel locked up and we went in the ditch again. So now I just want to get rid of this vehicle. We have had it in 3 times in one month for the same problem and it is not getting fixed.
