Q: I think my control arm is bad after a covered repair.

asked by on

When I drive my vehicle on the highway and going high speeds ( 60 and up) over a small bump or anything the steering wheel vibrates and it also shifts left to right sometimes. I was involved in an accident 6 months ago where I hit a curb and i had the car fixed since then. Can you tell me if it sounds like what I'm experiencing Is related to the accident and not properly fixed by the mechanics? I know I should have brought it up a lot sooner but I didn't know that it was a problem. I thought it was normal so to speak.

My car has 125075 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
