Steering

  • Worn steering components like ball joint or idler and/or misaligned front wheels. This causes difficulty steering in a straight line

  • Pulling, which means the car will have a tendency to steer to either the right or the left side. This is generally caused by under-inflated tires or a misaligned or damaged front end.

Riding and handling

  • Poor cornering is a common problem. This is often caused due to worn shock absorbers, improper tire inflation etc. Although there isn’t any hard and fast rule about when to replace the shock absorbers, you can still try out this test. Bounce the car up and down hard at every wheel and let it go. Observe the number of times the car bounces. The weak shocks will enable the car to bounce twice or even more.

  • The spring may get damaged. Usually springs do not wear; they don’t even need replacement unless one corner of the car is lower than others. But overloading the car may damage the springs.

  • A car may vibrate. This is mainly caused due to improperly balanced or unbalanced tire. This can even wear the steering and the suspension components. Balancing the tires properly is thus very essential.

Brakes

  • The car pulls to one particular side when the brakes are used.

  • Brake pedal sinks to the floor when pressure is maintained

  • The brake light on the instrument panel is lit.

  • A scraping sound or grinding feeling is experienced at the time of braking

Engine

  • Difficulty in starting the engine

  • Poor acceleration

  • Check engine light on the instrument panel is lit

Transmission

  • No or delayed response when shifting from neutral gear to drive or from drive to neutral.

  • Failure to shift at the time of normal acceleration

  • Slippage at the time of acceleration. The engine speeds up, but the car doesn’t respond.
