To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect the rear axle, adjust the alignment as necessary, and replace any prematurely or unevenly worn tires.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
