Yes, serious, it should not drift to the left, and shaking is bad. Have your wheel balance, tire, alignment checked. While they are aligning the car, have them look for worn suspension components.

did what was recommended. that was the problem. possibly from the rough winter. (potholes,etc) my left front rim was bent (on the inside). also there were cracks on the inside side wall of that tire. found by exchanging front & rear wheels. no prob. replaced rim,got a new tire. no more wheel vibrations.
