It sounds like what's wrong with mine and my brother says it needs a new CV joint or the wishbone and he knows about cars so gonna fix it. If you have to goto garage just say someone said it could be either of those things and i bet they change their attitude towards you hun xxxx

well had mine 10months and been ok apart from this thing going wrong now.lots of people dont like a Fiat but I always had one and last aug had a bad crash my car was a rightoff but the aa man said I was lucky as the fiat are vry solid and it took all the impact and I was ok. The car did not have air bags and the only thing I had wrong with me was a bad neck from the impact. I was hit pushed along the road hit by an oncoming car and then crushed against a tree. the people who saw it thought I would be dead and I walked away. The car was a mess but inside was hardley damaged. It was a 20yr old lad who hit me I was turning right into a car park and he came round the coner at 80mph in a 30mph zone and tried to overtake me. He had allready got 9 points on his licence.
He even had the cheek to tex me and ask me out for a drink using the words "we had an impact on eachother today ha fancy a drinlk one night darling!!!!!!!!! u can imagine my reply ha ha If u are an aa member they wil do a check on any car for u.

Glad it does not sound like too expensive a problem. I hate going into garages as they always look at me like 'here comes the stupid woman'. I was so lucky recently - my tyre got a flat and not only was I pregnant, I had no idea what to do. My sister and her boyfriend were behind, and as he is an army mechanic he did it for me in about 3 minutes!
