Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When applying the brakes from speeds above 80 the car swerves to the left. what could be the cause of this? Could it be the ABS playing up and what can be done about this?

Could be any number of things, like the brake pads or rotors, but mor e likely worn suspension components, the tires and or alignment. Where are you located at that the speed limit is above 80mph?

Tom, I am in South Africa. I was just trying to explain that the car behaves in this way and this after I have had the suspension components replaced at a very high cost. and this makes me wonder if the mechanic did a good job.

You may have a caliper sticking (not sliding properly). Having a caliper serviced is generally cheaper than replacing.
