Q: Car pulling and jerking

asked by on

My car is pulling and jerking.

Your vehicle may be out of alignment. Every time you hit a hard bump in the road, the alignment gets slightly altered, in most cases you won’t even notice, but eventually it will become out far enough that you can feel it. Most tire shops offer free alignment checks. I suggest finding a reputable tire shop with alignment services to get your chassis lined back up.
