Q: Car not driving straight.

asked by on

My wheel is not straight. It could be either the suspension, alignment, or axle. I am not sure.

If your wheel is not straight you could have a broken control arm or something else may be broken in the suspension. I would have the car checked out by a technician who can better determine the cause.
