How can you tell if your car has suspension problems?
Is there any way to tell if your car has suspension problems? I gave my friend a ride and she said that I should get it checked out.
If your friend, or anyone who rides in your car, is noticing issues, you should continue to keep a lookout for any telltale signs of suspension damage!
The suspension system consists of many different pieces that work together to control how well your car handles the road. Most suspension issues will impact how well your car drives. Here are some common symptoms of suspension system damage:
- Difficulties steering
- One side is lower than the other
- Drifting when turning corners
- Excessively bumpy rides
- Extreme bouncing after hitting bumps
Your car can still drive with minor suspension problems. But you should get it checked out as soon as possible. Serious suspension issues could cause your car to break down, so it’s better to stay on the safe side and get it checked.
