Q: How safe is it to drive my car if I need a flexi coupler replaced

asked by on

Steering wheels feels loose when going over bumps... Flexi Coupler
My car has an automatic transmission.

It is not safe to drive it at all with a loose steering wheel, as you could be putting yourself in grave danger if you are not able to steer your vehicle out of a possible crash. I recommend having the car towed to a local shop or having one our qualified professionals come to your car’s location to inspect the steering problem and advise you on a repair. Do not drive the vehicle until fixed.
