Could be as minor as an alignment or a suspension issue costing hundreds. Have a local mechanic check it out for you before you buy it. A small price to pay for piece of mind. The seller or dealer should let you do it, if they don't then walk.


Frame damage also comes to mind. Do have it checked out.


Ok will try to look into that...there is one more thing about ac...when i switched on the automatic ac...out of four vents at front two are giving hot air and two are giving cold...is it normal


No, I wouldn't say it is. If it's set to cold, all vents should blow cold unless you have dual climate control. In that case it's possible to have a 15 to 20 degree variance on either side depending on how tbd controls are set. As I don't think yours has that feature, take a look at the goes coming into the vents and see if they are connected or compromised in some way. Let me know if this helps. Regards, John


Thax...john l...will check it and let you know...
