I took my Daughter’s 2012 Honda Civic into the dealership for an oil change and tire rotation. They checked the wheel alignment and indicated a severe toe problem in the rear. I then took the vehicle to a local alignment shop ($45 vs $100+) that I have done business with in the past with other vehicles.
My local alignment shop shows the same toe problem on the rear. However they indicate that it cannot be corrected with the original manufacturer parts that are on the car. They indicate we will have to purchase and install after market alignment capable parts in order to align the wheels properly.
I’m a little confused. How does the dealership think they can align the wheels using the factory installed parts?
Why does Honda put out a product that cannot have the wheels aligned?
Your ideas are appreciated.
