Whenever I go over those metal parts on draw bridges my car really scares the shit out of me.......because almost everytime I end up slipping into the other lane or towards the barrier. This is really starting to worry me because if god forbid I hit someone we are on a godamn bridge!!!!!!! Does anyone else experience this and do you guys think putting the car into third gear would provide better traction?? I have a 98 Concorde LX without traction control but ABS. THX:mg:
i have wide tires and do have some grab and pull when crossing metal draw bridges in charleston, but nothing out of the ordinary or unsafe. i think slowing down and putting two hands on the wheel should reduce that problem
Yeah, I think the tread on your brand-new tires is gripping into the bridge sections like on a severely rutted roadway. Take it slow 'cause the surface below the tread isn't really meant to be driven on.
My car was aligned right after my tires were installed..so I don't think thats an issue. I only have 200 miles on them so ill see how they break in....and if they don't then I'm gonna have to blow another $300 on tires.:(
I never had a problem w/ the intrepid on bridges. I am also in RI, actually Jamestown, between our two big bridges that Loud98ES mentioned. Another thing that might be wrong is a loose bushing, tie rod, control arm etc. in the fron end. Is it a little loose while you're driving at highway speeds?
