2015 Jeep Renegade: Leaning to the Right

by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on April 21, 2016

2015 Jeep Renegade

No, our 2015 Jeep Renegade has not shown any desire to support the Trump campaign. I'm talking about its steering. It's pulling to the right.

I hadn't been in the Renegade lately, so maybe this isn't new. Then again, it was just in for its 20K service and the tires were rotated front to back. Maybe that's the culprit.

Whatever the reason, it's enough to make it annoying on the highway. And it pulled that way consistently enough that I'm sure that it wasn't just the crown of the road pushing me toward the shoulder. The 405 freeway here in L.A. is quite wide, sometimes six to eight lanes on each side, so I had plenty of chances to try different pieces of pavement. They all produced the same result.

I'll check with some other staff members to see if they notice the same thing. If so, we'll get it in for an alignment to see if everything is pointing in the right direction.
