Caprice

  • miles
Suspension causing excessive tire wear---replaced tires at 18,000 and now at 29000 miles. Dealer claims I need another alignment even though they just fixed it. Two tsbs associated with the steering and suspension. Steering has always been loose and sometimes locks up completely. Suspension has always pulled to the right front. Brakes have squealed since around 10000 miles. Engine has severe hesitation, but dealer cannot reproduce.( dot number: )
