Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

Chrysler needs to step up to improve its build quality at the factory. Alighnment off shouldn't be this much common.

One day I couldn't close my front driver side door and found out the hinge was really loose. Service center told me they never saw loose hinge for such a new car off the factory.

spoke with owner today to inform him his service shop is not prepping the cars properly . Offered to rake care of my service at the his shop. Ps the dealer just got a new hunter digital alignment machine.

Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

So my 2011 Overland is out of alignment again! steering wheel is off to the right, getting sick of taking this thing in to get serviced so much.

Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

Having the same issue -Jeep is pulling to the right. Dealer confirmed it is pulling to the right and is going to rotate tires and do alignment. With only 3000 miles on the Jeep it seems too early to me for a tire rotation but we will see how it comes out tomorrow.

Brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

I live in South Africa and bought a brand new GC last week. The steering wheel was not aligned and I took it to the dealer to be told that the car needs a full alignment done.
It is now worse than before.

Does anyone have the RHD alignment specs for a 5.7 Hemi?

Thanks
Johan

Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

jswart, I haven't had the chance to perform an alignment on a RHD WK2 as of yet. Does your Jeep have quadralift and/or adaptive cruise? I'll email you the specs when I get back to work tomorrow.

Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

I've had my jeep for just over a week and around 500 miles. At speeds over 70mph it pulls fairly hard to the left. Under that speed it still pulls just not as much and steering wheel is not straight. Unacceptable for a new car, but if the dealer fixes under warranty this will be their one and only mulligan

Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

I have had my Jeep Compass since August 2012, its been to the dealer 3 times already. They even replace on of the tires. This time it has been at the dealer's for two weeks as of tomorrow and now I am being told by Chrysler that this is normal for my Jeep and for me to come and pick it up. I guess my next step is hire a lawyer. i don't know what to do. I love my Jeep compass but this is not normal. Any suggestions?

This is a jeep grand Cherokee forum... Not a compass forum. You should post this in the correct area for best results.

Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

thank you.
I bought a 2014 5.7 JGC 2 weeks ago with the same problem. Quadralift.
I also bought a 2014 Compass with the same problem - brand new both cars.

Re: brand new 2012 needs wheel alignment

Not sure if this has been discussed elsewhere, but are the wheel alignment specs different for cars fitted with Quadra-Lift opposed to steel sprung?
I just got my wheel alignment done at a local tyre shop and didn't think anything of it until now..
