Hi, my car makes a rattling noise at lower speeds and only while in motion. If the speed is high enough, on the highway, it won't make much noise. Also, I noticed that when I stop at a traffic light or put the car in first gear, it will turn the steering wheel a bit to the right or left. I'm wondering what the issue can be? Please help.

This needs to be inspected at a tire and alignment shop right away. They'll look for worn parts in the steering and suspension systems. Your observation of the self-turning steering system is a lot more than most people would notice, and it's a valuable clue. If one of these parts separates, it can lead to loss of control and a crash, so don't put the inspection off too long.
