Jeep GC pulling to the left

Greetings all

I have a Laredo 4 x 2

When driving the vehicle pulls to the left, told em when I had the car in for sensors and one of the techs there stupidly told me, it pulls to the left coz it was built for the US market..... So does that mean non built US cars pull in the states!!!

Anyway, took it back again and they put down on the invoice, wheel alignment done, problem rectified...... I drive it away and same problem.... Let the wheel go and it pulls

I know it's not the road as I drive the same route to and from work each day and my wife's Civic hatch drives gun barrel straight

It's now going back for a third time to Ravenhall Jeep

Anyone else having issues with there's?

After 12 months mine still tracks straight down the road like one would expect from a new vehicle..
I'd be taking it to a tyre dealer who has a good wheel alignment machine.

Re: Jeep GC pulling to the left

There is a TSB for this issue, but not sure if it applies to your 4x2.

I had trouble with my alignment until I took it to a better tyre place who were able to sort it out.

Yeah I was considering that as a last resort.... But for a 4mth old car I expect better

I had same problem.
Take it to a tyre specialist. It's a tricky job and it took them 2hrs to get it right.
A mechanic at a dealer wouldn't have the skill or patience.

Pro Axle at Smeaton Grange fixed mine up.

It's absolutely perfect now, I'm extremely fussy with wheel alignment.

They do understand that there IS castor / camber adjustment on the Jeep GC etc, for some reason a lot of places are in denial about it.
