Hmmm... sounds like broken tranny mount?? Does If your car seems to lose control even on slight turn it's probably tranny mount. Or probably some loose suspension part.

Please always list mileage. Check the tierods and the balljoints. Could also be a loose/worn rack.

Reading my post again made me realize that my grammar's wrong. LOL
Anways my 93 coupe did that when I got my car last year it had 101K miles then. I first replaced the worn out axle but that didn't fix it. Then after being on panic for couple of days I took it to a different machanic and he told me it's the tranny mount. So replaced it and the car felt like new, well almost. Parts and labor cost me $250 from my trusted mechanic. Good luck!
