Front alignment excess toe in

Hi all, have a 2012 Accent CRDI hatch manual. Ever since we got the car (was a Demo) it has ever so slightly pulled to the left. The front tires have scuffed out on the inside. Took the car for an alignment and the guy couldn't do anything but rotate the tires and was surprised on how excessive the toe in was... Have there been any issues with this?

The alignment shop should have been able to adjust the front end to make it right. The back end cannot be adjusted without major work do to it being a one piece beam axel.

Couldn't adjust it without having major toe in issues and would have made things worse, so back to the dealer to see what the say!

False. Is it a safety recall? No. Is it a Warranty Bulletin? No.

Please be careful saying things like that without knowing the meanings of technical releases.

They won't do anything if you are over 12,000 miles. The TSB is just to update their spec charts at the dealerships.

TSB's do not mean warranty repair. If you go and they fix it, you will be paying for it.

Not true, they will fix it, I had a shop here in town go to do an alignment and they said my shocks were compressing and not coming uncompressed so I took it to the dealership, they claim that it wasn't that the shocks were bad but they found my car toe in was .06 in on both sides and aligned it for me at no charge, I do believe they did more and didn't admit it though, my car rides a world newer lol
