I just called my dealer to schedule an appointment for the recall. Seeing that they have free alignment check advertised on their website, I also asked to schedule an appointment as well for another car I have. To my surprise, he said no appointment needed. I asked if they needed to put my car on the machine to check and he said no and it only takes 5 minutes. So they must be taking a reading with the car on the ground. Interesting. Does anyone know what they do to check the alignment so easily while the car is on the ground?
