I am really really keen on getting a Clubman Cooper S - I went to view one today, everything was great, apart from one thing...
The owner said that due to pot hole damage, the passenger side wheel was 'repaired', so when I took it for a test drive I found the steering to be pulling slightly away from me (no specific direction) when driving in a straight line, I really had to hold on (also, it wasn't my car so I was extra cautious)
But the main problem I noticed when I let it roll up to a roundabout, I could feel that during each rotation of the wheel it pulled away from me again. It wouldn't stay still, it would kick out a bit.
They have the receipts to prove the car wheel was replaced, and the tracking etc was done last March... so I thought to myself, this could be fixed, solely by getting tracking/wheel balancing done. But I am not that clued up on this sort of thing.
My issue is I don't want to pass on a good deal with something that can be fixed, but also, I don't want to buy something that could potential break me financially haha!
Please, anyone that has had this sort of experience in tyres/tracking/or pothole damage, please let me know!
