Dancing, Prancing E-350
My company bought this brand new E-350 high-top with a wheel chair lift in the back. The first time I drove it on the freeway, I found that it starts to be unstable at 60 MPH and once you reach 75 MPH it's a Prancing Dancing Fool. I took it into a dealer at 190 miles and they did some minor ajustments to the alignment. I didn't get a chance to check for the problem again until it had 900 miles on it. The instability was still there. I took it in to another dealer and they found nothing wrong and like the first dealer, blamed it on it being a high top.
I have a 2001 Dodge van with a taller, more ungainly high top on it, and though it's a bit top heavy, the steering is quite stable. Am I dealing with a design failure, or is there still a problem somewhere? Anybody got a clue?
