    am I mad or do bumps make my steering go loopy!

    Hi all,

    Im new to this and any help woukd be greatly appreciated!

    I got my ex showroom blak edition last month which now has 1k on the clock. Last week I drove into a big pothole and ever since, I swear that on uneven surfaces or small bumps in the road, the steering pulls left or right somewhat. On smooth surfaces the car runs fine but I swear that it used to be fine on bumpy ground too! Is it me being paranoid or is there a problem?

    Ive read about bump steer and sounds similar but wouls this happrn on s brand new car snd just from a pothole? I am no car tecchy so please offer dome advice if possible.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    If you have hit a pothole you may have a dent on the inside of the rim or a bubble in the tyre or the tracking is probably out

    Go & have it checked

    This is a car which you have bought last month and last week you have hit the pathole, get to a garage or tyre specialist as soon as possible as the tracking may well be out. Not doing this will lead to severe tyre wear and higher fuel consumption.
