TL CONTACT OWNS A 2002 TOYOTA AVALON. WHILE DRIVING AT ANY SPEED, THE STEERING WHEEL BECAME DIFFICULT TO TURN. WHEN THE STEERING IS OPERATIVE, IT IS VERY ERRATIC AND HARD TO CONTROL. THE STEERING WHEEL OVER COMPENSATES AND CAUSED SEVERAL NEAR CRASHES. THE CONTACT TOOK HIS VEHICLE TO THE DEALER AND THEY IDENTIFIED THE FAILURE AS THE STEERING KNUCKLES. THE DEALER ALSO STATED THAT THE STEERING COLUMN NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE VEHICLE IS CURRENTLY AT THE DEALER FOR REPAIR. THE VIN WAS UNKNOWN. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 42,213 AND THE CURRENT MILEAGE WAS UNAVAILABLE BECAUSE THE VEHICLE IS AT THE DEALER.
