That would be their job. Take it to a real alignment shop, dealers overcharge anyway.


Was your car in an accident if it was you could have a bent frame and some kind of damage that is unforeseen to the human eye you might have to take her to a body shop that does frame straightening they might be able to do that before a regular shop can align it?
