    That could just be a result of the guys not centering the steering wheel before aligning the car. They're supposed to do that.

    The good news is that if you do have a rear alignment issue, it may not be that bad. If your original Enasaves lasted 32K miles, that's pretty good...especially if you didn't rotate them regularly. Post your alignment numbers if you find them.

    If your only having issues after changing your tires check they're all evenly inflated. Nothing should change alignment wise after replacing tires with similarily sized tires


    Edit--- i just read back further and seen you had an alignment. They must've done a great job lol

    Ide be going back there today.

    Trust me, Eggman, I'm going to continue pursuing a resolution until it's either fixed under warranty or I surpass the 60k mile warranty limit. That'll probably happen by late Spring/early Summer 2018.

    A little long winded rant..

    I called to setup an appointment for my airbag recall and to get my alignment checked.

    There's no longer a mitsubishi dealership in Milwaukee. It closed. They were a pretty big and popular dealer, that now is Subaru specific. The closest one is in Waukesha WI (25-ish minute drive)

    Also... Refused to check my alignment for free (understandably, there is no recall) should've had my friend call, he could sell sell salt to a slug. Currently waiting on a call back from his manager. I will be impressed/delighted if he calls.

    I don't think i would be following thru on an axle swap unless it's way out of spec but it doesn't really hurt to check right? My tires are good and no other issues so if it's not free i won't be getting it checked.

    I'm yet to have a positive dealership experience with mitsubishi hopefully this will be my first.

    This threads 99 pages of fun so I'm sure it's been answered but what are you guys saying to get a free check? Or am i smoking magic beans?

    There are shops that will check your alignment for free. That is what many have done.

    I have been going to Amato Mitsubishi (near 76th/Brown Deer) since it's the closest to me up in Ozaukee county. I had a bad experience buying a car at Russ Darrow so I don't want to give them more business anyway. I didn't know Schlossman is no longer a Mitsubishi dealer?!

    I was quite shocked too.... They were advertising mirages for $88/mo last month! I asked if they had any close out inventory and she told me, "i believe it's all been sold"

    I didn't know about the one in Brown deer thanks.
