Monitoring your Car for Faults

Even a brand new car can still have difficulties and might develop faults. This becomes increasingly more common as the car gets older and it’s therefore very important that car owners monitor their vehicles for safety purposes. Here are some of the things to look out for that could indicate a fault:

  • A change in the steering. If the car feels like it is pulling to one side or the steering wheel feels like it is getting jammed, you could have a problem with wheels or the steering mechanism.
  • Unusual noises. These could indicate that there is a problem with the engine, or that something has come loose such as a bearing. Monitor this closely and get the vehicle checked quickly.
  • Problems with tyres. They could be losing pressure quickly, or you might suddenly experience a puncture when you are driving, especially if you go through a pothole or over a very rough area of road.
