2018 F-Pace Prestige. At Highway speed, and only in turns to the right, the vehicle will sometimes exhibit a wobble where it feels like the back end of the vehicle is steering the car. This does not occur in turns to the left and is exacerbated when the road has bumps or ridges in it. In other words, when making a long sweeping right hand turn at roughly 100 Kmh, the left side suspension begins to compress which is normal, however, the vehicle does not hold its line and track thru the corner as we all know the F-Pace does so well. It actually compresses the left side, then bounces back causing the vehicle to straighten resulting in an over-correction in steering and then a series of understeer and oversteer results, ie. the car wobbles in the corner. Have tried tire replacement with no improvement. Have had the dealer look thru all the suspension and steering assemblies with nothing found. This has the feel of a bad shock absorber in the left rear side resulting in the back left of the car bouncing in the cornering since there is no dampening or rebound control when the shock is defective, The dealer assures me the shock/strut is fine. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Solution?

Double check the front outer tie rods. I've replaced several of these and they definitely cause a wobble and instability.
