alignment issue

Hi there

I just bought a brand new GC 2015 limited with 20 inch rims. I have notice the car is pulling toward the right a little so i took it to the dealer , the dealer did an alignment diagnosis and said that everything is fine and no adjustment is needed but i don't believe him , I took a picture of the report if any expert here can help me

Re: alignment issue

That actually looks pretty good from the docs I have.

I need to take mine in for an alignment this week, 2015 with 900 miles. Mine pulls to the left all the time and pretty bad whenever braking.

A slight pull to the right is normal because most roads are crowned. I would go out to a perfectly flat parking lot like at the mall and see if it still pulls right. Also see if it pulls more when accelerating, braking or just coasting.

Thank you SavageBrewer

Maybe i feel it because it's my first Jeep and this is what it does normally , it seems that the steering wheel will just go with the road it's too soft & prone for movement easily

Re: alignment issue

if you hold the wheel centered straight will it still veer off? The steering on this car is very light and is affected by road conditions more than other cars i've owned.

Re: alignment issue

I'm going to assume that the front tires air pressure was checked……

Re: alignment issue

I had the same issue when mine was delivered new. Went back for an alignment and they made pull the other way. Tried a new dealer with new facility and equipment and it was done right. Tracks straight as an arrow even at high speeds.

So even if you let go the steering wheel it will go straight
Any idea what specification they set the alignment to?

alignment issue

Rotate the front tires left/right, possible cross thread issue if the alignment check good and problem moves the other way
