Question about 2001 Subaru Outback
When you try to drive over 40 mph, the steering wheel and car seems to drive very rough and bouncy. Never had any problems withit before, always drove very smooth and straight. overnight this seemed to happen. It has been very cold and lots of snow and drifts, don't know if this makes a diofference or not!
I would first check and see if you have a build up of off ice on the inside of the wheels. If this started all of a sudden it might also be a brake problem like I have run into in the last few weeks of bad weather. The duel caliper brakes had one caliper piston stick and let the brake pad be uneven causing a vibration in the front end. Sometimes it would release and work fine. Hope its the ice in your wheels, but if not I would take a look at brakes before spending a lot of money. Good luck and have a good day.
