Okay... I just bought this car(1997 subaru legacy 4 spd auto) a few months ago and I got a flat on the front left tire. there was no donut spare, but i did happen to have a studded winter tire in the back...I know mismatched tires are bad, but it was a temporary fix. 3 days later, after very minimal driving, I start to feel it acting sluggish(like a wet sponge haha) while turning. It jolts during turns like an old 4wd truck. I did't dare drive anymore on just that tire, so I pulled the 3 other studded winter tires out of storage and put them on immediatly.
Obviously that wasn't the genie that solved all my problems, It was still driving like that, so I decided to put the FWD fuse in. That has stopped the jolting during turns, but it hasn't really solved the problem, and possibly will create another. Im not sure how good it is to only drive in fwd for too long.
Im seriously broke. I graduate in spring, but I NEED this car to last until then. let me know what you think might be the problem, as well as a possible solution. Thanks guys
