You can’t possibly fix everything wrong with your car. For the safety of you and others on the road, don’t pretend you’re an expert. Here are a few car problems to leave to the professionals.

This is one of the vaguest car problems to have and the hardest to pin down.

It sounds like simple car maintenance—you just have to rotate the tires of your car, how hard is that? However, this is a car problem to leave to the professionals. Most professional tire rotations also include other services you want, such as:
- Rebalancing the tires

- Analyzing damage to treads
- Proper realignment
