Have you been experiencing a bumpy ride recently? When things aren’t as smooth as they should be, you might want to consider possible automotive problems. Excessive rumbling, bumping, wobbling, or vibrating is a sign of potential trouble. There are several factors that could be contributing to the issue including tire problems, suspension problems, transmission problems, and brake problems.
This is most often the culprit of a bumpy ride, and it’s generally the most affordable to repair. Issues with tires could mean that one or more has insufficient air, there is rocks and/or debris stuck in them, or the wheels are improperly aligned.
The suspension in your vehicle is designed to keep your tires on the road and your ride relatively smooth. If there is an issue with the suspension, you will definitely be able to tell. Some signs that you’re likely dealing with a suspension problem include your car bouncing a lot before stopping, experiencing especially harsh impact when driving over potholes and bumps, or if you notice the vehicle leaning to one side. If you notice any of these issues, call Stroebel Automotive to get repair or replacement work done.
If you notice bumpiness as you shift gears, you likely have a transmission issue. The longer you let a transmission problem continue, the more complicated and expensive it will be to fix. It is to your benefit to have your transmission looked at as soon as possible if you think there may be an issue.
Finally, if nothing else, you may be dealing with a brake problem. If your bumpy ride is accompanied by squealing or moaning sounds, you may have an issue with your brakes. It would be wise to bring your car into Stroebel Automotive to get them checked out as soon as possible to keep the problem from getting worse.
A bumpy ride always has a reason, and it’s usually something that needs to be replaced or repaired. Getting the issue resolved quickly will keep it from spiraling out of control. If you have any questions about your vehicle not driving smoothly, call Stroebel Automotive today at
