TOYOTA RAV4 STEERING PROBLEM

2003 Toyota Rav4 • 34,000 miles

Hi there, wonder if you could help me resolve a concerning issue. My steering wheel suddenly feels really light, it feels like when I turn right or left but especially right, I dont have control of the turn as the steering is almost unfeelable. Yesterday, I turned right out of a slight hill junction and the car did a complete half turn heading me into the other side of road, I managed to control the vehicle and get it facing the way I was going and stopped on the side of the road to calm down! Had the wheels aligned that afternoon and although three tyres were out, I was told that wouldnt have caused that. Perhaps you can help! Thanks

Check the suspension linkages etc. Any fault can alter the caster and alignment causing self turning.
