Default 2009 Aspen -- steering problem = buyback

If you have a 2009 (but not 2008 or earlier) Aspen that has unrepaired steering or rear axle issues, you may be eligible for a dealer buyback at market value + 10%.

Excerpt from Fiat Chrysler ordered to buy back Chrysler, Dodge, Rams and Jeeps - Jul. 27, 2015 :

If you drive one of several Ram pickup models, or a 2009 Dodge Durango, a 2009-2011 Dodge Dakota or a 2009 Chrysler Aspen, your car qualifies for a buyback if it hasn't been fixed yet. Eligible Ram pickups include the 1500 from model years 2008-2009 and the 2500, 3500, 4500 and 5500 from model years 2008-2012. Chrysler said that there are less than 200,000 of these vehicles on the roads.

The problem: Those models were recalled two years ago for steering issues or loose rear axles. Either problem could cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. To make matters worse, Chrysler didn't make enough replacement parts or failed to provide "effective" parts after the initial recall, said Gordon Trowbridge, spokesman for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

I have a 2008 aspen. On the expressway after hitting a bump the car will veer to either direction. HOORIBLE bump steer.
On a cold start the steering will initially freeze. Driving down a normal road at low speeds, you can feel when turning the wheel a flat spot. Some one please help diagnose this problem, thanks in advance.

I recently got one with 137K that also has the bump steer. When it first happened I thought there was something seriously wrong with it but read about others having similar issues. Mines needed stabilizer bar bushings and end links initially but new ones didn't change anything. I haven't read up enough to find the cure for it yet...hopefully someone chimes in with some.
