strange steering column, brake pedal issue
I've noticed lately that the brake pedal feels loose, like there is some play as I put my foot on it, and it makes this thunking noise which seems to be getting worse. I know I can just take it in and have them fix it, but the more annoying part of this is that in some instances, as I'm approaching a stop, and I am in the act of depressing the brake, if I hit some bumps as this is happening, I can feel the bumps knocking on the steering wheel column, like its become loose for a second or so and causes this brief rattle and I can feel it with my hands. It's weird. I already know they have to be able to replicate the issue to be able to diagnose it, which is the problem. I can't always make it do it. Does anyone else have this issue? Do you know what is making it happen so I can see if it's what is going on with mine, and thus will be able to replicate the problem for them? I'm going in later for my next free oil change and I wanted them to fix this problem while they have it. They still haven't fixed the "something is engaging" feeling a second after you hit the gas peddle issue either. Anyone know what that's about? Is this all related?
