Road construction can be rough on cars and trucks. If your car or truck is suffering from rough roads, call the Wichita auto care specialists at Tracy’s Automotive.
Anyone who’s lived or driven in Wichita for any length of time is familiar with the signs of road construction. We’re not just talking about the actual signs themselves. We’re talking about other signs – traffic cones, broken pavement, uneven pavement, loose rock and debris, heavy equipment and workers to dodge.
The construction and mess require drivers to be especially cautious and alert to avoid an accident. But no matter how cautious and alert you are, your car can end up suffering.
“These rough road conditions can be tough on a vehicle’s steering and suspension system and can throw out the alignment, while loose stones have the potential to damage the vehicle’s exterior or windshield,” according to the non-profit Car Care Council.
“Even the most careful motorist, who is driving slowly and carefully through road construction, is bound to hit an unexpected bump or other road hazards,” said Nathan Perrine, executive director, Car Care Council. “Be sure to pay attention to your car and if you think there’s a problem, have it taken care of as soon as possible.”
The council adds, “The main symptoms of steering and suspension or wheel alignment problems are uneven tire wear, pulling to one side, noise and vibration while cornering or loss of control. “
The council recommends that motorists have their vehicles checked out immediately if any of these symptoms exist, as steering and suspension systems are key safety-related components and largely determine the car’s ride and handling. Regardless of road conditions, these systems should be checked annually and a wheel alignment should be performed at the same time.
