I have a strange intermittent steering issue on my 2007 Focus. Sometimes when turning left slowly (e.g. turning into a side street) there is a feeling through the steering wheel like driving over a large stone with the left tyre. The steering wheel also feels like it briefly pulls to the left.

I do sometimes get judder on steering wheel when driving on main roads at 60 to 65 mph but not all the time.

Steering also not to good in the wet even with 5mm of tread still on tyres, donít always feel in full control of the car.

Any body else had any of the above?

Have something to contribute?

Hi, Have you checked the tyre for a flat or hard spot, to check for hard or flat spots, jack up the car and spin the wheel, you can also try swaping the wheels around. also have the tracking checked..
