Eh?

Do you mean it wanders in a crosswind?  Mine doesn't.  How worn are your tyres?

New on the front

3.5mm on the back

There was quite a few high wind warning signs out though to be fair

Then it may have happened in any car.  When did you last check your tyre pressures?  As it gets colder, the pressure in them decreases, so a few psi more may help.

When its highly windy the car does have a tendency to get caught out a bit, for instance coming out into a clearing after a sheltered tree area.

Then its a sudden two handed job and grip tight Razz   

Think the reason is that these cars are quite light.

So, are you saying that last week you were blown by Abigail, and this week you're being blown by Barney? Wink

I believe the tracking is out on my motor after hitting a monster pothole which probably doesn't help; somehow the power steering seemed to freeze up last night it was -5 though
