Question 2015 WK2 Crooked Steering Wheel

Did you buy / lease a new 2015 WK2 with a crooked steering wheel?

Some posts have indicated that the steering wheel was pointed a little "to the right" while driving straight down the highway, as it was on mine.

This is apparently caused by the auto transporter when the vehicle was strapped down during delivery to the dealer.

The fix is a front end realignment which is free if you catch it in the first 12,000 mile / 12 month period.

I want to collect data as to how widespread this issue is.

Please respond if this pertains to you, and please indicate your city / state location for mapping purposes.

I will not disclose your identity in the stats I plan to post on this thread in the future.

Thanks

I took delivery of a 2015 Overland last Monday. Steering wheel is straight, and the vehicle tracks as designed.

Re: 2015 WK2 Crooked Steering Wheel

Since mine was purchased new out of state, I needed to go for Pennsylvania state inspection. The fronts failed pretty bad on their computer. I need to call jeep and have them do the front alignment as well. Funny to see this may be a widespread issue.

In Michigan, 49127. Bought in 49097. Have the slight right crookedness in the steering wheel. Will be getting it taken care of next week when the dealer can finally fit me in.

OK - What city & state was the dealer in where you bought it?
(and date too)

Re: 2015 WK2 Crooked Steering Wheel

The crooked to the right steering wheel has been going on for a long time my 2014 (march 2013 build date) had it as did many on here between then and now. there are other threads on this, just one of those things jeep never corrected in later vehicles.

Re: 2015 WK2 Crooked Steering Wheel

I had the issue on my Overland. It was built June 2015.

I bought it in Denver, CO but live in Farmington, NM.
