OKay, so I pick up my goat from the dealer and boy did they help me out.
Lubed my steering wheel column to take care of the vinyl sound. Which it most assuredly did not. And I got to spend 20 minutes cleaning grease off my windshield, steering wheel, and radio as well.
Same goes for the seat creak. Only this was so obviously non-fixed I could tell the minute I turned the radio down 5 minutes from the dealership.
They had to order the bushings for my front sway bar so they could replace them. Getting a pop like release sound after holding a sharp turn and then straightening the wheel out on the passenger side. Had the same thing done for the driver side about 4 months ago.
Here's the kicker now. Although my car is only at 11K miles and needs it's THIRD alignment, they refuse to accept the fact that this is not a normal occurence of alignments for my vehicle. People, I'm not an idiot, I know if I go ramming through pot-holes and curbs my alignment will be screwed and I can assure you - this is not the case. Plain and simple, every time I drive from Tampa to Miami and back the alignment is off to the left. Car pulling right, steering wheel cocked left about two inches. The damn thing just won't hold an alignment.
I go back for the bushing replacement in a week or so. What do I do? I'm at the point where I'll pop fifty bucks for an alignment, but if I'm back needing another one at 15K miles, then what? How far do I push the steering wheel and seat creaks? Help
