Car drifting to the right Sign In

I have a 2014 cts and it has been drifting to the right. I have had 2 separate shops do alignments on it, I've had a road force balance done, I've had the tires rotated and balanced 3 times. Before all of this I had new tires put on and I don't believe that it is a conicity problem bc I have had the tires rotated and balanced and it still pulls to the right. What the F**k do I do? It just keeps pulling to the right when I let go of the steering wheel.

Re: Car drifting to the right Sign In

it seams like more questions than answers - working thru this.
Are you original owner ? Let us know about accidents.
The shops were alignment/suspension shops* OR the typical tire chain shop?
What did the 2 shops that already attempt repair say to your continued problem?
When on a two lane road what happens when traveling on Left side - the opposite road crown?
Did any repairs precede this condition - new brakes, suspension work, ever a tow needed?




*thinking is technician and equipment capabilities

Re: Car drifting to the right Sign In

I am not the original owner. The car was never in an accident but all 4 rims were bent. Both the Cadillac dealership and the tire shop said that fixing the rims would fix the pull to the right. I repaired all 4 rims and it did the same exact thing. I also had to have the left front control arm replaced which is what caused the alignment issue in the first place. The Caddilac dealership performed the alignment after replacing the control arm and that's when it started pulling to the right. Before any of these repairs I had bent rims and bald tires on the car when I initially got the car and it drove perfectly straight.

OK cadi did the work,
What is their reply when you voice your dissatisfaction ? I am confident they would recheck or identify a cause of the problem.


PS - a bent control arm and 4 bad wheels? Not a normal list for a recently acquired 'well maintained' no accident vehicle.
