I've only put a couple of hundred miles on my newer '93 DeVille since I bought it. This is the one with 65,000 original miles. I have been noticing that the Right Rear Wheel looks kicked out a little at the bottom. I'm guessing that a Rear Wheel Alignment will take care of it, but my question is: What would make a like-new low mile car have a problem like this?

Also, am I correct that a Rear Wheel Alignment will most likely take care of it?

In over 47 years of owning cars now, this is the first time ever that I've had a problem like this.

Any other helpful info would be appreciated.

Thanks

Yes, a rear or 4 wheel alignment will take care of it.

An improper alignment before you got it.
Damaged parts.
Accident

=========================
while the car might only have 65K miles on it -
it is 22 years old -
and with that low miles -
every single suspension part could be the original -

carefully inspect every rubber bushing -
rubber dries put and disintegrates over time -
and that would definitely affect the alignment -
