Q: Car veers left

asked by on

After getting into a car accident, the car veers to the left.

The damage from the accident may have bent or broken an important suspension component. Control arms and struts take a heavy hit when impacted and can bend, throwing off the vehicles wheel alignment. Have an experienced technician inspect the steering and suspension systems for signs of damage. They will also be able to make the repairs necessary to get your car steering straight again.
