- the contact called regardingthe 2006 Buick Lucerne. The contact stated that the vehicle shifted to the right. Before he purchased the vehicle, he took the vehicle for a test drive and noticed the vehicle pulled to the right. The dealer advised him that they would align the vehicle before he took delivery. When he picked up the vehicle he noticed the vehicle still pulling to the right. The failure mileage was 30 mph. When the cruise control was on the vehicle it pulled to the right. There were no warning indicators. When the vehicle was driven around a curve the steering wheel came back to the center, but it still drifted 3 degrees to the right. The contact stated that he must keep pressure on the steering wheel in order to keep the vehicle straight. The contact stated the dealer has done 3 front wheel alignments and balanced the tires. This has not corrected the steering problem. The current mileage was 2400.
