Every driver has not come to expect their steering wheel to correct back to center after it is released upon completing a turn. But there are those times when it does not happen quite like you would expect. Or maybe your vehicle pulls to the left or right when you are attempting to drive straight which means you are fighting your steering wheel when driving down a narrow road or trying to stay in your lane.
This could point to a problem with your wheel alignment. There are several reasons why your wheel could be out of alignment, normal wear and tear or more commonly, your wheels can get knocked out of alignment after dropping off a curb, or running over a deep pothole. When your wheels are out of alignment you will experience some drivability issues.
You might notice excessive vibrations when driving at higher speeds, fighting with your steering wheel when attempting to drive straight or uneven wear on your tires meaning you will need to replace them sooner than you might have expected.
This can often times be a quick fix and it is a good idea to have your alignment checked at least once a year as normal driving can cause your alignment to falter.
