For your car to work as well as possible, all of its internal components must behave accordingly. One of the most important parts of your car is the suspension system. Your suspension system is responsible for minimizing the lumps and bumps you feel as you drive down the road. If you feel like something is wrong with your suspension system, you need to reach out to a professional who can help you. At Mansfield Motor Group, it would be our pleasure to work with you to take care of your suspension system. What are some of the signs that something might be wrong with your suspension system? Reach out to our service center to make an appointment.

1. You Feel the Bumps More

One of the first signs that could indicate that something is wrong with your suspension system is that you feel the bumps more often than you previously did. If your suspension system is working well, you shouldn't be rattled by potholes on the road. On the other hand, if you feel like even small potholes are making your ride uncomfortable, this could be a sign that something is wrong with your suspension system. It would be our pleasure to take a closer look at your vehicle to figure out what is wrong. 

2. The Car Is Pulling

You will never drive on a road that is completely flat, but you should not feel your car pulling to one side. If you feel like you have to exert more pressure on one side of the steering wheel to keep your car straight, this could be a sign that something is wrong with your suspension system. Point your steering wheel directly straight ahead. Then, take your hands off the wheel for a split second to see if your car begins to drift. Of course, you must make sure you do this at a safe time and in a safe location. If your car quickly begins to pull to one side, it could be an indication that something is wrong with your suspension system. We can look at it for you.

3. Your Tire Tread Is Not Even

If your mechanic tells you that the tire treads are not even, it could be a sign that something is wrong with your suspension system. You need to rotate your tires at least once per year to ensure they are wearing evenly. During the tire rotation visit, the mechanic should take a look at your tires to make sure the treads are even across the wheel. If the treads are not even, it is a sign that your car is applying more pressure to one part of the tire than another. This might be because something is wrong with your suspension system. If your mechanic tells you it is time to inspect the suspension system, you should listen.

4. You Have a Hard Time Steering the Vehicle

Modern vehicles have power steering that makes it easier for you to turn the wheel. If you feel like your car is resisting you when you trying to turn the steering wheel, this could be a sign that something is wrong with the suspension system. Your suspension system works in concert with your steering system to make it easier for you to direct the car. If you have to apply more force to get your car pointed in a specific direction, it might be a sign that something is wrong with your suspension system. At Mansfield Motor Group, it would be our pleasure to address this with you.
