Worst tire shop I have ever been to!!!!!!!!!! Went in for an alignment and they broke my door lock then denied it to the point of getting upset at me, then when I left, the car pulled to the right so hard at 20mph that in 1/2 block I would have been jumping on to the sidewalk. I took the car back and they said that it was the tires and not their fault, they called it "radial pull", come on,,,,you don't get that pulling that hard at 20mph without the alignment being way off. They indicated to me that they were not going to do anything about it. I think I will check w/my Attorney to see what I can do.
If it didn't pull before the "alignment" then they got the caster adjustment wrong. You don't need an attorney as it's well below the limit of small claims court. Just get the alignment done elsewhere and give them a chance to return your money. Your case will win every time. If they refuse, assuming the second alignment corrects the problem, you can threaten to report them to BAR.
