I had just gotten on a 6 lane expressway with a 45 mph speed limit. Hands at ten and two - just watching the road going about 40 mph in the far left lane so people could turn on the road. I had been having a clunking sound when I would pull out of my driveway for awhile but didn't want to go back to the dealer because I had just gotten a 10,000 mile oil change and after removing a tire with a nail in it found they had to order the tire, which took 3 weeks to get (apparently run flat tires are still in Japan, ,) so, I back to my near death experience- I was driving slower than the speed limit down the road when I lost all steering in my vehicle and I was headed into oncoming traffic. I hit the tall cement median and I pulled as hard as I could back to the right. After I hit I had a little control again. With both drivers side tires striped flat I had enough steering to put my hazards on and get back on the correct side of the road and pull the thing into a side parking lot to be towed. I feel like the thing is trying the kill me! warranty has to cover this but I think I'm gonna have to trade it in. Too scared to drive the damn thing. Atlleast I have two witnesses that can verify my event incase Toyota tries to screw me over. Rav4S R dangerous vehicles and something has to be recalled or people R going to die.
