    I wonder how long it will take Mitsubishi to find a cure to this problem. If any cure at all. Hopefully we aren't all screwed.

    we just need to build our case and work with Mitsubishi, it shouldn't be a big deal once they realize there is a problem.

    I guess I'll be taking my car to the dealer for an alignment check this Saturday. Sure is a big hassle for a car with less that 3k miles on it..... So are there any so far that are not out of alignment?

    Based on what we've heard so far, that's a very good question.

    Guys, alex16 is right. I think that the more of us to open a case with Mitsubishi about this, the sooner we could get a definitive fix. That's the main reason why I've bothered them so much.

    Oh I'm going to make a point to look into this I have almost 3k on my car. No reason anything should be out of alignment. Especially on a car that you can adjust the alignment .

    it could just be an illusion, but i swear that i when i look at my rear passenger side wheel, it looks visually out of alignment. i suppose i should head in to have it checked so i can go on record with the rest of you guys.

    There is a "Adjustment" period 12 months /12K miles

    "ADJUSTMENT PERIOD
    Adjustments required as a result of a manufacturing deficiency
    are covered for 12 months or 12,000 odometer
    miles, whichever occurs first."

    That the dealer must adjust anything during the first year or until the car reaches 12000 miles if Mitsubishi determines that it originated at the factory. The tricky part is to prove that the problem came with the car.
