Ask them just what the hell do they think those bumpers are bolted to? Shocked

I hate to even say it because the world is at the lawyers and judges door this day and time but,There is the Lemon Law and if it can't be fixed because of a factory defect it may apply if you can prove it. Your mechanic's report plus the car fax thing may be your ticket. Then again I am starting to lean on the theory that the laws are there to protect the one with the thick billfold and in the end, the lawyers and judges are the only winners. Good Luck...............

Tom try taking the two front tires and criss crossing them sometimes the tires will cause a pull .If you do that and it pulls the other way then the problem is in the tires. Also did the dealer give you a print out of the aligment?? one other thing to check is make sure the tires are all the same size that will for sure cause it to drift or pull ..If all else fails take the truck to a differant shop and get a second oppinion

hope this helps you out

I had the tires rotated. there was a carfax done when I bought it. And everything came back clear. Also I measured the back of the front tires to the wheel well and one side had a inch of more place than the other side. That alone tells me that their is a problem. And yes I do have a print out of the front end and the castor is still in the red and he told me he couldn,t do anything with that.

I'm not sure what you mean inre this statement. The wheel liners are just flexible plastic so I wouldn't put much stock into that. OR - did you mean something else?

what sux about the carfax is not everyone reports accidents, someone may have wrecked it, fixed the noticable damage and then trade it off.

It probably a small fix, like ball joint or tie rod or a shock.

Look at the cheap stuff first and keep us updated.

i have an appointment tomorrow but the are already giving me the run-a-round saying the frame might not be covered. That it might hve to go to the sales department. What the fu%$ Mad when i bought the truck they said it had a bumper to bumper warranty know they are saying that warranty was only for the first three years. It is an 05 so you do the math. If that is the case why even tell me about it. Mad

Did you get anything in writing or documentation about the bumper to bumper warranty and how long you had left on it or was this all just verbal?
