While driving the road curved to the left. I tried to follow road as it curved. I was able to turn the steering wheel but the wheels could not follow the turn. The Hummer went straight causing me to go into a ditch. The passenger front wheel flew off with the axel' please help me understand.

2005 Hummer H2 unable to steer on dry asphalt when at a standstill. Dealer replaced all steering components and it still cannot steer if at a standstill-like when you are trying to park it. I went to answers.com and a Hummer expert said the power steering is weak in many GM SUV's and cannot be corrected. I have checked with other owners, and half say they have the problem, and half do not. If you let the vehicle roll a little, then it can steer. But that makes it even harder to park. I decided to look at a new 2008 Hummer H2, but the one I liked could not steer at a standstill, they tried to sell me a different color, which could steer, but I did not like the color.
