Re: Car Swaying on highway

Hope the tire alignment was done recently. If so, please take along an experienced driver and ask him to negotiate the same stretches where you had the issue. If he's also facing the same issue, you need to get your car checked or alignment done from another place.

If he doesn't have any issue, please go and drive yourself through the same stretch. If you don't notice it again, it might be crosswinds (although very unlikely for the speed mentioned). If you do notice the pulling, you might want to enhance your driving skills. We've all been there and it takes time to get a steady hold of the steering at higher speeds when you're a new driver.

Happy and safe motoring!

From what I see, in that particular time interval, it looks like your left tyre is actually moving on the white median markers. Depending on tyre & other factors, the car does behave differently when being driven on that paint strip. I can actually see your tyres going over them in many places based on the camera vibration. This might be a reason.

Thank You everyone for the tips. I did some additional search on YouTube and also consulted my Friend and found these Insights.

If the curve is towards left, stick to the right lane marking and move along.
