Steering wheel pulling on Decel

Hey Guys,
I have a 2007 compass with 28000 miles. I am experiencing my steering wheel pulling when I decelerate and also in some cases when I accelerate. Has anyone else experienced this and do you know the cause?

John

Bolts loose on the rack and pinon? We've seen that problem before.

jumping or pulling on decel and accel

Just got my Compass back from dealer. Bad rt hand tie rod.
Only 29000 but my first real problem. On the way back from the dealer my check engine light went on. Went back and service rep said wait and see after a few starts. Funny it happened as I was bringing it home.

Tie rods seem to be common problems among 2007-2009 Chrysler vehicles. I would assume that Chrysler could take care of something so minor to fix.

It's actually a vendor issue that Chrysler is responsible for. I'd be changing vendors if it were me but that won't solve the problem with the bad ones that have already been installed.
