    Pulls to the right, all kinds of creaking sounds coming from underneath the vehicle, every once in while, a loud thud sound will be heard, these problems have been on going for months now, but most recently, check engine light came on, drove home with it on, only about a 5 minute drive, this happened Friday afternoon haven't drove it since, was planning on taking it to garage Monday morning.

    Just bought this vehicle. It only shakes around 45mph. When I get above 50mph the shaking stops. I haven't fixed this problem yet.

    Left front tire had the wheel well liner rubbing the tire. I fixed the liner and rotated the tires. The left front still vibrates above 40 MPH but stops when turning right. I feel no vibration below 40 mph. I am having the alignment done this week and will see if that fixes the problem. Vehicle also pulls slightly to the right.
