On the Road 2

  • Listen for rattling or any other body noises - driving over speed humps is a good check for this
  • Watch the exhaust for smoke - accelerating uphill is a good check for this
  • On a straight road, ease your grip on the steering wheel and see if the car pulls to one side, which can indicate worn suspension or misaligned steering
  • Also on a straight road and after checking for traffic behind you, try the brakes several times. The car shouldn't pull to one side, and the brake pedal should feel firm
