Problem alignment not tires

Vehicle

2008 Honda CR-V EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

I noticed that most of the 2008 CR-V reviews fault the tires and poor mileage. It appears the problem is alignment. I purchased a shop manual when I bought the car. Four attempts at the dealer to bring the alignment into 'spec' resulted in the car pulling to the left (read head-on collision if not attentive with constant input). I took car to a local alignment shop. They said an after-market kit exists for rear camber adjustment. Installed kit and now, mileage is up and car goes straight down the road. Problem now, Honda Corporate and dealer say warranty is void. Appears this is a generic problem with the '08.

Favorite Features

Style, reasonable compromise of performance and GPM.

Suggested Improvements

True four wheel alignment before accepting delivery of car.
