It is possible to skew the alignment without realizing it, such as hitting curbs, going too fast over speed bumps, hitting potholes too fast, or having an accident, no matter how minor.

There are some noticeable signs that could indicate a misalignment:

Are you wondering about what is the life of a car battery? Take some time to read below about the signs that it might be time for a car battery replacement. If your battery is starting to wear out, your vehicle loses the power to start or to keep all the accessories working properly, let alone drive down the road.

Here are the three main signs of a bad battery:

  1. The engine cranks (turns over), but refuses to start.
  2. Nothing happens at all when you turn the key in the ignition.
  3. Your vehicle may start randomly one day and not the next.
