What is a hub on a car?
I’ve had some problems with vibrations in my steering wheel, and my father says I should bring my car into a mechanic immediately because there may be a problem with the wheel hub assembly. What is a hub on a car?
Answer provided by
Yes—your father is correct. Take your car in immediately to be checked over.
A hub on a car is what attaches each wheel to a car. Each wheel has a hub at its center. The hubs contain bearings, which permit the wheel to turn, but these bearings can become worn and can cause serious problems with steering and the operation of your vehicle.
A problem with your car’s hub should be addressed as soon as possible. You should not continue to drive the car before having it looked over by a professional.
