Renegade 2005 - Loose steering??
Hi all! I got my first jeep in April after my car was totaled after a altercation with a cow in the middle of the night. Today, I was driving Francis (my Jeep) to work. The highway to my job has no shoulders and it's not uncommon for anyone to accidentally slide of the road a teensy bit. However, today, going between 65 and 70 mph, one of my wheels got caught off the road and I could NOT get control of my jeep. This has happened before when driving my previous car, but I've never completely lost control of my vehicle. I was all over the road, trying desperately to slow down and get back in my lane. Long story short: I've been really anxious driving since my accident with that cow and today just drove my anxiety WAY up because of the temporary loss of control. Honestly, if there had been a person in the opposite lane, I would have been in an accident.
So, my question is: has anyone had this problem with loose steering? I was trying to way overcompensate trying to get my jeep back going straight (I know what you're thinking: that's probably why you were swerving. It's hard to explain, but that wasn't why I was swerving.) My dad has noticed it shakes quite a bit too. Is this normal for a jeep or??? I'm not quite sure what to do. I love jeeps, but I want to be safe too.
