problem #3

Feb 112016


  • 8,400 miles


While in motion, the vehicle begins to veer to the right. An immediate correction is made but the wheels don't respond. After several seconds, a grinding noise is heard from the back and the car shakes. After that happens, the car drives normal. This has happened at slow speeds, high speeds, going around curves, and driving straight. I have gone off the road once because of this. It has happened five times in approximately 8600 miles (9 months).

The contact owns a 2015 Acura Tlx. While driving approximately 5 mph, there was a loss of power steering and the warning indicator illuminated. The steering wheel became difficult to maneuver. The engine was turned off; however, after restarting the vehicle, it resumed normal operation. The failure recurred three times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the steering linkage was not faulty. The contact mentioned that the vehicle was pending to be taken back to the dealer for a second diagnosis. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 6,315.

While driving the power stering stopped working without warning. This happened 3 times on 112115 to get the stering back you must find a place to pull over place the car in park shut it off and than restart car not always an easy thing to do.
