Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

Does the steering heel have a jerky feel to it when you try and turn it?

No... it's a smooth slip. have 86,000 miles the last two years my daughter was driving it... 4 wheeling, muddling, speeding, potholes, you get the picture.....

When I got it back, I noticed the slip.

Sorry I hit the wrong button. Did not mean to opt out.

Expert:  Cary York replied 10 months ago.

If it has been off road it could be anything. It would have to be physically checked by lifting the vehicle and inspected. I will opt out now.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok I will take it to dealer. Thank you
