Hi Friends,
Last week i went for a small trip Chennai to Sri Kalahastri,
from Chennai to gummidipoondi there is lots of road work and diversion so i can not cruise my car, after that there is some decent stretch so i went up to 120 Kmph, when i reach 120 my steering getting jerking and makes me to feel not more than that speed,

pls suggest me what is the exact reason for the jerking, i feel this cause due to poor Suspension. pls suggest me before i take her to mechanic.
Should be an alignment issue. Get alignment and balancing done first at any good shop before taking it ti skoda. In worst case, could be a bent rim, but that's very unlikely to happen unless you recently had hit your wheels in a deep pothole or something.

It can't be the suspension coz its the stiff suspension set up itself that makes the ride planted at high speeds, as per my experiences with VW.
