Okay, something’s wrong with your car. You know it. It just doesn’t “feel” right.
That may sound lame when you’re talking to your mechanic, but believe me, it’s not something you want to ignore.
Maybe you feel like car is difficult to handle. Maybe ride just seems less smooth and stable. Perhaps there’s a vibration that wasn’t there before.
These symptoms almost always indicate a problem.
Is it harder to steer your vehicle? Do you have difficulty steering in a straight line? This might mean your front wheels are misaligned or you have worn steering parts.
Does your car feel like it wants to steer or pull to right or left? You’ll need to get this checked out. It may only be that your tires aren’t properly inflated. But it could also mean that your front end is misaligned or damaged in some way. That’s nothing to play around with!
Maybe your car feels like it’s vibrating. Your tires may need balancing in this case.
It’s a good idea to check your shock absorbers and struts, too. They might need replacing if car rides “strangely”.
If you put on your brakes, and your car pulls to one side – that means you need to take in it for repair.
If brake pedal sinks to floor when pressure is maintained – same thing. Take it in.
If you hear or feel scraping or grinding when you apply brake, this indicates a problem that needs to be checked out.
