id check the alignment and balance of the tires first, then the actual wear pattern. That could be the cause there.

As for the car bogging down, that could be a variety of things. Run the check engine diagnostic and see if anything comes up. That should narrow the problem. The car bogging with the info we have could be anything fron dirty air filter to a dead cylinder.

Is for the heater not working could be a pluged heater core, or a stuck thermostat. I flush the system and put a new thermostat in, because it is going to cost you less then $20, and you know that your colling system in in top shape
