Safe driving, responsive steering and fast stopping are all put in jeopardy if problems creep in and suspension and steering parts loosen or corrode. Find out how to identify problem areas with a thorough front end assembly check on your car.
Deck lids only refer to the upper part of the trunk. The part of the deck lid that holds the latch, is referred to as the deck lid panel. The panel generally holds the vehicle's emblem and is displayed as a different design from the rest of the trunk body.
