Steering problem
2009 Mitsubishi Outlander 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 9000km miles

On highway at over 100km/h the car feels like loosing direction. In order to keep it straight we have to steer all the time, left or right. Under 100km/h seams OK. What could be?Thanks

Could be a simple adjustment such as an alignment, or tie rod ends, or even tires tread could be uneaven

Thank you very much for your answer.
Anyway, I brougt it to the dealer this morning, the same dealer that we bought the car from last Thursday. :-(

In addition the "Check engine" light came on in the weekend.

I would like to scan my car's computer, not because I don't trust the dealer ;-) but just to know the history of the events. Please explain how can I do it on that web site autozone.

By the way, the dealer told me it was just a lose wire that caused the Check engine light to go on and off. What do you think?

About the other problem, on keeping the car on a straight line, they said like you said that's an alignment problem. Tomorrow il will get back the car, take it for a ride and I will keep you updated

Thanks againi
