2018 Subaru OUTBACK Steering Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1461966
 Internal NHTSA #11089288
 ManufacurerSubaru of America, Inc.
 Model Year2018
 File date21/04/18
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemMostly at higher speeds, 70+, the steering reacts erratically. Multiple symptoms of major concern. On a consistent basis, the feeling of control leaves, it feels as though you are hydroplaning into deep water when your tires temporarily lose contact with the pavement, this can happen during any driving condition. All control seems to leave. Then control comes back. In high wind, when you need to correct the steering angle this sensation happens a lot. Any movement away from a straight line will cause this to happen. Sometimes in straight line driving, the steering wheel just momentarily attempts to turn on its own. Last night in rain, i was afraid to drive over 65 mph because the steering kept leaving, again like it was hydro planing, and no it wasn't hydroplaning as every other car was passing me at 75+ mph. This is a consistent and constant problem. It is very scary and i am quite alarmed at this problem. There is something major wrong here.
