Your steering system

When it comes to driving the car, it is safe to say that the steering wheel is clearly an essential part! If you can't steer your vehicle, then you clearly cannot drive it.

There are two different types of steering mechanism called the rack and pinion and the steering box respectively. Most will use the former of those two systems.

And many cars also have power steering these days which was unheard of not so long ago and then only as a power feature on certain heavier cars. The system as the name implies is designed to make steering easier.

As with most parts of the car, the steering can develop faults. If you experience any of these then you need to get it checked out urgently.

If you find that the steering seems inconsistent then it could be you've got a puncture, and you may find that the steering seems quite heavy if you have power assisted steering and it fails, if the wear of the tyres is not even then this could be due to steering needing adjustment.

Other possibilities you might experience are a higher than usual level of vibration at certain speeds, and this could indicates the balance of the front wheels needs to be looked at.
