steering rack was replaced in the beginning of September.

It pulls to the right just the slightest bit when driving...but not all the time. It is hard to duplicate because while driving on the same road numerous times it may or may not happen...

Hi sgmfocus, Some Guy From NY, and joe77,

I'd like to escalate each of your cases to your regional Customer Service Managers. Please reach out to me via PM with your VIN, mileage, preferred servicing dealer, and daytime phone number; I'll get on the case!

Here I am! And for everyone else in the thread - if you're experiencing this same issue, please give me a heads up via PM; I want to see how I can help.

Thanks everyone,
Crystal
