My Vehicle needed the rear suspension recall, I took it in and had it done, they said an alignment was needed at that time, is that typical for that recall? Also, now that my 2yr free maintenance is over we took to and Ind shop for oil change and tire rotation and they say we need new tires, but mileage shouldn’t warrant new tires, has premature tire wear been reported as a side effect of the rear suspension recall. Recap — have alignments and premature tire wear / replacement been a side effect of the defect. thanks

  1. I do not believe that an alignment is part of the recall and therefore would cost you money. However depending on the mileage, etc your particular vehicle may have been in need of an alignment. Tires may or may not need to be replaced, is there 2/32 of tread left? Have you been rotating your tires when scheduled? these factors way in.

    Premature tire wear has NOT been reported as a side effect nor has alignment.
