My husband was driving our newly purchased 2004 Lexus 470gx to Georgia when he encountered problems with driving under rainy weather conditions in North Florida. My husband communicated the steering was very loose and the car was pulling. According to my husband, this happened two times and on the third incident the vehicle went out of control. My husband was not able to maintain control of the vehicle and it flipped approximately three times before ending up in the median on it's side. My husband is a very safe driver and was exercising much caution when driving. He's driven an SUV (1997 Toyota 4runner) for eight years. We purchased the vehicle on 12/23/06 and I am concerned that something was wrong with the vehicle. We've driven in worse weather conditions and never had anything remotely wrong happen...I'm not sure what could have caused this and seek out some help and advice. Please help.
