What is it when your car pulls to the left?

One of the Most Common Causes of Pulling is Wheel Alignment The most common reason a car pulls to one side is that the wheel alignment is off.

Whether it skews to the side over time, or you hit a particular vicious pothole, wheel alignment will be altered by driving conditions, and it should be checked regularly.
