    Juddering when turning

    When i put full lock on in my A3 1.8T sport, the car feels as tho it judders or bounces round instead of being nice and smooth. It mainly happens when reversing out my drive, feels as tho there are small stones beneath the wheels and makes a sound as if its juddering (you can feel it as well)

    Any ideas what may be wrong? Defo not a CV joint and its not 4wheel drive so not haldex.

    Cheers, Andy

    Can you feel it vibrate right underneath you and it feels like it goes from one end of the car to the other?

    i have same on my car when turning out of my road in the morning, i have checked everyhting and there is nothing broke. But when try it on a flat road turning both ways it doesnt do it.

    could it be down to cold tyres, cold weather, slippy road surfaces?
