When you drive, you may notice an issue with your vehicle, just by the way it steers on the road. There can be several different reasons for the issue, so always make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. When there is an issue with the alignment, you may start to notice the vehicle pulling in one direction or the other. If the steering wheel is straight, but you notice the vehicle drifting in one direction, the alignment will need to be inspected. When the tires are no longer aligned properly, you will first notice it by the steering wheel as you drive. Bring the vehicle in, and we can inspect and align the wheels for you.
Also remember to notice any odd sounds the vehicle might make. This can range from grinding to screeching noises that it could make. If there is an odd noise, there could be a severe issue you will wan tot have inspected as soon as possible. The brakes could start to wear down. This will then produce a metal noise. As the brake pads wear and make direct contact to the brake rotors, you will notice the noise. If you hear a clank noise, especially after going over a bump, it may be the shocks or struts of your vehicle.
If a belt is starting to slip under the hood, you may notice a high pitch squeal or strong odor of rubber under there. If a belt brakes suddenly, the vehicle will not run properly. Always make sure that you notice any issues, and schedule an appointment with us. We can check the vehicle for the cause of the issue, and repair it as soon as possible for you. This can help you to have a safe and reliable ride this spring.
