Countryman ALL4 Cooper S - back end skitterish
I just wondered how 'planted' the back end on the car should be - since I bought it, it has been decidedly twitchy at the back - especially at high speed overtakes and high speed cornering (not overly fast, I might add). I wouldn't have thought this is normal, as its a car designed for relatively high speeds.... I will check the tyre pressures and see if the rears are over-inflated, but is the type known for rear wheel alignment issues?
As an aside, I had a very annoying squeak appear last week, particularly on bumpy roads and round corners. It was coming from the back end, and when I had it in for oil change, the mechanic narrowed it down to rear anti roll bar bushes (standard chassis version) - squeak totally disappeared, but the car is still twitchy at the back end.... no other suspension issues found.
