If it happens on your Jetta, I'm guessing you got Weird Roads round your place!

Alastair,
You forgot to mention that he drives on the wrong side of the road as well !!!!!
& the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the dash !!!

Steering shock is an interesting idea. My 300SD no longer likes to turn on its own during turns. Although it does sounds like you need some new tires. Steering shock was relatively inexpensive and is a breeze to replace (10 minute job).

Only drive on secluded country roads so you don't take out my SD when your tires blow. Only description for driving at speed on known dry rotted tires is STUPID.
