I purchased a used dodge neon and notice when making left hand turns the entire car slides to the right. The car responds normal when making right hand turns. I believe it's the tires. Any other idea?

Hello,

If the vehicle skids across the pavement, it could be bald/worn out tires.

But if it just leans excessively, it could be due to faulty sway bar or sway bar links.
It will be a good idea to inspect those components, especially on the right side.
Are you getting any type of noise?

Look for any broken links/bars or loose/worn bushings.

I have attached diagrams showing the location and replacement procedure below.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
