I have a 2000 STS and I may need a wheel alignment. I know this car has a steering wheel position sensor and probably lots of other electronics relating to steering that I don't understand.
My local tire shop offers a 4-wheel alignment for $60, while my Cadillac dealer wants $100. Is there something special about this car that might make it preferable to take it to GM for an alignment? (Do you need a Tech2 to reset wheel position center or something strange)?

Re: Seville alignment - should GM do it or any shop
This looks like an almost duplicate post. The exaggerated inside wear on the inside of the tread indicates excessive negative camber or gross toe-out. Either sagged springs, inoperative level control system or faulty suspension components. A good alignment shop should be able to identify the problem and either do a 4-point alignment or replace worn parts, then do an alignment.
