It is what it is brother. If you have had everything professionally checked and it still pulls...there isn't much left you can do.

ok so i just got a call from the dealer:

he said that the alignment settings WERE within tolerances, but that they changed the settings to be more "centered" within the tolerance ranges. he then said that the car still tended a LITTLE bit left, so they tried swithching front tires. this essentially solved the problem, in fact caused the car to then drift a little to the right. but, since the tires are directional, they have to switch them back the correct way, and so that's the best the car's gonna get: a slight drift to the left. conclusion: apparently there's a fault with the tires.

and oh, btw, the car won't be ready until tomorrow morning since they have to switch the wheels back around.

So get new tires. How long does it take these people to switch a couple wheels?

sorry, i first posted in one thread by accident and meant to put it in the other.

yeah, they said the tires were defective. but that is logically impossible: the problem started to present itself PRIOR to the new tire installation.
