Hi All,

Wonder if anyone can help out here before i take the car to the garage. My A160 done 132K vibrates whenever on bumpy roads. The body vibrates and also the brake grips tend to weaken gradually on bumpy roads. In addition, the steering also jerks to the right in the same circumstances. So three things happen when on bumpy roads
1. Car body vibrates
2. Brake grip weakens
3. Steering and car jerks to the right
This feels really strange:confused:, because on smooth surfaces the car drives well.

Anyone aware of what could be wrong? Broken springs, suspension, brake pads? What could be wrong?

in addition, get all the bushings and track rod ends/ball joints checked. Some MOT garages will carry out these checks for free these days.
