Cadillac CTS V-Sport Discussion, Can't align new Vsport in Cadillac CTS Coupe, Sport Sedan and Sport Wagon Forums; Got my brand new 2014 Vsport on Friday and noticed it pulls to the right, changes lanes in 10 seconds ...
Got my brand new 2014 Vsport on Friday and noticed it pulls to the right, changes lanes in 10 seconds if I release steering wheel in straight freeway. Back to dealer on Saturday and they try to align, but tell me they don't have the new software.
No change. I tell service Msnager, and he says he will call me when the software is in. After three weeks I start calling dealer, Cadilac customer assistance and Complain in the Cadi survey. This HAS TO EAT TIRES, and Vsport wears P-Zeros.
Finally, the software is in, and they try again to align. I have a nice piece of paper showing perfect alignment specs.
No improvement. This car pulls to the right, and will change lanes in 10 seconds.
Dealer tells me they have no answer, and I'm not the only Vsport owner with this problem.
Anyone else have this, or an answer?
I thought my car was just slightly out of alignment and took it in. They said it checked out fine, and that this car is more sensitive to the crown of the road. I knew it was sensitive to the crown of the road, like most cars with wide tires, but the Vsport is more sensitive than the other performance sedans I have driven. I just think it doesn't track very well.
I will also say that I felt like the slight pull was lessened after the service visit. Maybe it was mental.
I drove on a nice flat road today and the car tracked well, but straight ahead doesn't seem to be "home" more than any other direction. I think this coupled with a majority of the roads around here being crowned is what I was experiencing.
My experience is on flat multi lane Houston freeways and I45 between Houston & Dallas.
Wife's Acura TL , my Toyota Tacoma and former FX 35 all drive straight. Vsport distinctly goes right everywhere, and changes lanes to the right in 8-10 seconds. My whole life with cars, that is out of alignment, especially noting the balanced tire pressure on the monitor. Otherwise, it is a super ride.
sounds like bad tires. Even though the tires might balance, ive seen balanced tires still cause a car to pull right or left. Im assuming vsport is staggered so you probably cant swap locations, but maybe see if the dealership will try a different set of wheels and tires and see what it does.
I had the same issue when i bought the car. It still pulls to the right around town, but as soon as I get on a nice flat highway it is spot on. I believe it is just sensitive to the crown of the road as well.
