STEER TER­ROR

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Your Letters -

I read your piece on the loss of steer­ing in a Vaux­hall Combo (Tales from the Work­shop, July 2018) and thought ‘scary’ was too mild a word! Think­ing about this fail­ure leads me to be­lieve that any ve­hi­cle los­ing its steer­ing at a speed above 30mph would have a very high risk of death for the driver or a pedes­trian.

Even with to­tal brake fail­ure, you could at least avoid ob­sta­cles by steer­ing away from them. I think this type of sud­den steer­ing fail­ure should ne­ces­si­tate a ve­hi­cle re­call and am sure that Vaux­hall or ve­hi­cle watch­dogs would want to know about it.
