hi i have a renault laguna 1800cc estate having problems with car wandering when driving seems when you accelerate pulls to one side take foot off goes back but unstable when driving
scary to drive over 50mph


The first thing I'd do is take the car to a place that does 4 wheel suspension alignment, most places use the back wheels as a datum and assume that they are perfectly straight and true. Often this is not the case and many modern cars are now adjustable at the rear as well as the front.

A 4 wheel alignment measures all four wheels independently and each is set -up without referring to each other.

Well hopefully 2 new tie rod ends and an alignment and all will be well
