Hi Alex...No it doesn't turn by itself. In the course of normal steering, the steering wheel just jerks rapidly to the left then back to nuetral.
It isn't related to road surface, direction of travel, speed, or braking. Just happens at any time, and will continue even while breaking.
Alex..one more piece of info....I left it at the dealer this morning. After I said I didn't believe that the jerk was caused by the Cv's...they then said it also needed a new steering box, (another $1000). I said that made more sense. They needed to order it and it would take a week if I could leave the car. My BS detector was in overdrive!! So this afternoon I went back and paid for the diagnosis and brought it home. I found on theXXXXXthat it all of a sudden for the first time in 3 days was driving just fine. I couldn't make it malfunction...but it smelled like oil burning. I popped the hood. They had filled the pump resevoir to the top of the neck and ATF was running all over the engine. Could they have done something to fix the jerking problem in that short of time?
Thanks...it makes more sense...I appreciate your thoughts
