Steering alignment constantly needs adjustment. Alignments prove futile. Steering wheel pulls to right during all driving conditions.

Every three thousand miles the vehicle burns 2 1/2 quarts of oil. Took to dealer to have oil consumption test, front end makes popping noise, sensor changed less than 1000 miles and transmission slips. Nlm

When driving at highway speeds of 65 mph, and hitting a bump vehicle will veer to left or right. Hard to control. Took vehicle to dealer, who lined up front end and adjusted gear box, did not remedy situation. Before repair was done, the steering wheel was rigid, but after the service it became very loose.
