: the contact stated while driving various speeds, the front suspension pulled to the left and right side without warning. The vehicle's front suspension was inspected by the dealer who determined a front alignment was needed. Afterwards, the problem persisted, and the vehicle was returned to the dealer, who determined all four tires were worn and needed to be replaced. The tires were Continental P225/60R17. Additionally, the dash instrument cluster panel lights and headlights flickered on and off while the vehicle was at an idle. The vehicle was inspected by the dealer, who determined the sensor for the exterior lights needed to be replaced. After replacement of the tires and lighting sensors, the problems persisted. The manufacturer was alerted.
