Car steering to left

Recommended Posts

Hi , I am having an issue with my Avensis 2012 D4D , as when I am driving the steering wheel tends to go left is I let it go, it always wants to go left. I have done a full wheel alignment at Toyota , but still the same issue, have swaped tires, but same issues. There seems to be no damage on the CV axel and suspension. Other issue that it might be related is when I am doing a parking  maneuver, I hear a "tuck" sound  especially when I turn left, same side where the I have the steering issues. What can it be? 

Thanks

Most roads have a camber to the left naturally making your car pull to the left .try driving in the middle of the road to see if the issue goes away  there are alignment machines now which check chassis alignment as well as wheel alignment .regarding your noise when turning tight left or right sounds like a cv joint .

Thanks for the answer, the issue is the same even in the middle of the road, have done a wheel alignment at toyota, the chassis alignment haven't tried yet. About the CV joint I was thinking the same, I manage to go to a Mechanic that said  the CV joint were okay. Could not tell about the noise, he just said probably I should put the car on a lift. But  was  enable to provide any more diagnosis.

Start at the easy stuff then work your way back up.

Tyres pressures, wheel balance, wheel alignment, then play in track rods/bushes/steering/suspension/etc.

Take it to a garage you know and trust and have them check over it.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
