Why is My Steering Wheel Loose?
You get in your car and start driving, only to notice that the steering wheel feels loose. It doesn’t feel like you have accurate control of the direction of your tires and it may be hard to keep the steering wheel straight. You may also notice that even when you turn your wheel an inch or so, the tires don’t move. This can be extremely dangerous when it comes to driving on the road with your vehicle in this condition.
As soon as you notice something strange with your steering wheel, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle into GIA Service Center. Our experts can perform a vehicle inspection to determine the cause of the issue and provide you with an accurate estimate of the work needed to restore your vehicle back to its best.
If your steering wheel is loose, it could be caused by the following:
- A damaged pitman arm
- Worn tie rods
- Failing ball joints
- Low/dirty power steering fluid
A steering wheel issue can be stressful, but rest assured that it can be fixed quickly. We recommend reducing your driving as much as possible until you can get your vehicle into our shop. If you’re in need of any type of service or repair, you can trust in GIA Service Center.
