Alignment on a 2014 GC 4x4 limited

Last time I went for the oil change, I told them the steering wheel is slightly off the center and they told me it needs to be aligned and quoted me $89.99. I was wondering if I should have the dealer do it or take it to any local auto shop and save $30 bucks? Does dealer have more accurate result? BTW, are both toe and camber on both front and rear wheels adjustable on 2014 grand cherokee 4x4?

When you get it done, there are tolerances that they have to follow. Don't think it matters where you get it done. I just had mine aligned 2 months ago as it was pulling slightly right.

Mine is also pulling to the right slightly. Are both front and rear wheels adjustable? I know some cars don't allow rear wheels' camber to be adjusted.

Re: Alignment on a 2014 GC 4x4 limited

I had the typical alignment done. 1 wheel was quite a bit out of the tolerance and that made a big difference. I wouldn't be so worried about the back tires unless you run curbs or hit of pot holes. You could always call the shop and ask.

Re: Alignment on a 2014 GC 4x4 limited

The rear of our Wk2's have OEM adjustments for camber and toe angles. The front has OEM adjustable caster, camber, and toe adjustments. If you are going to have an alignment performed, have a 4 wheel alignment performed and have it done correctly. Make sure who ever does it provide you with before and after results. If your dealer doesn't have an up to date Hunter alignment system, find someone that does.

I had my steering wheel centered based up the TSB that's available and on the W2k site. No charge at the dealership.

They can,just bring it up and let them know it's a TSB. It's free of charges.

Re: Alignment on a 2014 GC 4x4 limited

Asked the service manager. He replied "The TSB you have attached is an information only bulletin. It references having the vehicle aligned on an alignment machine as we recommended. I can not cover this under warranty as adjustments were only covered the first 12 months or 12,000 miles. Your vehicle is out by both." But he did offer me $20 discount for $69.99.

Re: Alignment on a 2014 GC 4x4 limited

The tsb is info that has been acquired by others who have had the same issue. You should try another dealer or ask to speak to the manager of your steering wheel is off center,this is a covered repair and i got no resistance at all from my dealer.
