Unsettling Experience

Recommended Posts

The road itself was flooded a few weeks before so it had quite a bit of dirt on it.

 

It was straight and dry that day.

 

I was going 35 and let off the gas. No brakes.

 

The rear axle shuddered and I was quite a bit off angle-wise, forcing me to steer from hitting the guy.

 

I am a little pissed about that, I bought that a week ago. I have never experienced that in any one of my vehicles.

It was a very dirty road. Still surprised at how it went off angle wise.

 

Fortunately, I had two arms to steer it back. No braking, no gagging, no steering

Gassing. I meant to say gassing but I realized I'd sound worse

That would suck.

 

Was the engine still running?

Did you get lights flashing in the DIC?

 

What happened next?

No flashing, it was running. Still surprised at how the rear axle shuddered and I got off angle wise. At least 15 degrees. Had to steer, poor guy jumped in his lawn. Don't think he got my plates so I'm good

Is the road flat? Bumpy? Anything to add to this story? This thread is unsettling.

It floated on wet gravel by the sounds of it.

Sounds as if there may be a loose nut behind the wheel, or something like that.

I'm regretting the purchase.

 

No pressure on any of the pedals on a dry terrain. It shouldn't be off angle wise.

 

Should have stuck with a Ford, it never did that. That Chevy is a piece of shit, there, I said it, you Chevy fanboys.

Washboard roadway?  My Ford will kick sideways on that type of surface.

I still would never expect it to be out of angle. Been driving on that road for years.
