    Cts Steering Wheel Centering

    I just picked up my 04 CTS (luxury/sport package, nav system, blue chip), and love it. I have one little nit to pick..and thats with the steering wheel being very slightly off center to the right. The car tracks properly, its just annoying to have the steering wheel not perfectly straight.

    I took it to the dealers service dept..and got the standard "we put it on the alignment machine and its within specs, blah blah", but its still not centered. How big of a job is it to center the steering wheel on a CTS?

    Take it back to them and tell'em to fix it. If it's off to the point where it's noticeable, I highly doubt it's within spec. They're BS'in you.

    95% of our CTS's have the steering wheel on with it cocked to the right from the factory. The alignment is fine, they just need to straigten the steering wheel - I'm waiting to do mine till I get my new suspension on...

    I believe that it has to due with the tie-rods under the car being "off"
    If so, the alignment machine would not show it, and would show that it is, as the dealer said, "In Spec" ~~
