Hey Folks,

I have recently purchased a used IX35 from a Hyundai Dealership with 40K miles on the clock. On the test drive, the vehicle was rifting to the left which the dealer stated they would correct with wheel alignment. On collecting the vehicle, the issue remains even after wheel alignment. The dealership has stated that they will look at the issue again, but before I take their word that it has been "fixed", has anyone experienced this issue before? There appears to be several threads online about the Elantra with this issue, but just wondering whether the issue had been rectified with a Hyundai recalibration or whether owners were informed to suck it up? If a fix isn't available then I might need to take action to blow this one off.

Thanks in advance.

Experienced it before? Bad experience with the dealer? That's a given. Keep on them. I doubt they even aligned it.

LHD or RHD vehicle? Road camber will pull a vehicle slightly, we drift slightly left being RHD. The only alignment that can be adjusted is the toe-in without correction kits fitted like offset bushes or camber bolts.

It may be worth taking it to an independant specialist you trust just in case something has been bent in an accident.

RHD. Camber will only pull a vehicle slightly I think as you attest to, but it has been driven on completely flat roads and surfaces (i.e. store parking lot) in which the same thing happens. I'll wait to see what the dealer says as they are examining the car as we speak. Vehicle certainly has not been in any accident otherwise they wouldn't be able to sell the car in the first place.

Has anyone else experienced this issue though, and was there a fix to the problem? Would be frustrated if a fix was done and the problem came back within month. At the moment, as the response to the issue from me has been prompt, I haven't been bitten by the snake.
