Illustration for article titled My reliable car broke.

Exaggerating slightly but yeah the Twingo has a couple issues. Telling everyone how reliable it is has jinxed me. The drivers side brake rubs when Im driving straight, gets louder when i turn the wheel to the right, but stops when I turn left. Odd. Took everything apart, greased and cleaned up everything. Came back within a week. Need to check that again.


But the big problem right now is the steering creaks, and I mean loud. Its also starting to bind up a little. So tomorrow morning is a day of checking strut top bearings and every joint in the steering system. To be fair the way I drive this thing sometimes I’m not surprised the suspension is wearing prematurely.
