2016 Outback Bump-steer
Before I bother with taking my car in again just to pay $45 to be told that "it seemed to drive normal" and "It's probably your tires" I figure maybe I should ask here, does anyone else experience some nasty bump-steer with their Outback? Mine has done this since day one (for me, bought at 32k miles CPO) and I noticed it the night I got it. It did not get any worse when I changed to all-terrain tires.
Specifically, the back end shifts around when driving over bumps or manhole covers. From paying closer attention to it more recently so I can nail down as many details before I take it back in for this, it's most pronounced from the RR wheel, and pulls the rear and towards the right. Low speeds it's not as prominent, but at higher speed it's very noticeable. It makes the car really unpleasant to drive, especially with how bad the roads are around here.
This issue is really starting to drive me nuts the longer I live with it. Has anyone else had this? Did the dealer do anything about it, and if so, what was done so I may be able to point mine in the right direction?
