problem #4

Oct 212004


  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,000 miles


Within 5 minutes of pulling out of a parking lot and onto a main street, driving at 20 mph in stop and go traffic, suddenly the vehicle veered to the right. The driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to go over a curb, up onto a lawn, across the street, hitting a mail box and went back onto the road. The vehicle hit an on coming van, went back up onto a curb and stopped. The driver had no steering control. The vehicle is currently at the dealership being repaired.
