Loose Steering

7 posts in this topic

Hey, I've had my fiesta about 6 weeks (bought from brand new) and everything has been fine but over the last 2 days the steering seems to have become loose and sometimes when I brake hard it kind of slips, also does this sometimes when I just turn the wheel a little. I guess I should just phone the garage up but I just want to know I'm not being paranoid as I always seem to have trouble with cars, new or old!

*edit* I've called the Garage and its booked in for tomorrow.

Sounds like worn bushes in the lower arms???

Let us know what it is, how serious it is and how much it costs as it could be a valuble bit of information for the club.

Good grief, after 6 weeks? Yikes!

I'm hoping it will cost me nothing, but if I get a bill for the record I'll definitely let you know.

Cheers :D

It was the tracking, they did it but the steering wheel is a bit wonky so I'm taking it back again!
