Car seems to slip on corners
17 replies 824 views
My car has just had a major service and passed the MOT with no issues two weeks ago, today it feels like it’s slipping on corners and had a bit of wheel spin on a hill, which hasn’t happened before - any ideas what it could be? Could it be the wheel alignment? Any advice would be great.

Before you spend, remember the MSE Money Mantras. Ask yourself, do I need it? Can I afford it? If the answer is NO to any of those questions, DON’T buy it. (Quote from MSE 15/11/22)

I presume it wasn't icy?
I have also noted the older I get the more premium my tyres seem to get.
