Does my Mercedes-Benz need an alignment?

While driving, you may notice that your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is pulling to one side. Your first instinct might be to assume that your vehicle’s alignment is off, but really there are multiple reasons why this may be happening. If you’re driving an older model, alignment may be the cause of your drifting, but in newer models, it’s likely other factors are causing the pull.

The cause of your drifting could be caused by location. By that we mean that in some areas, roads are pitched in a way that the pavement in the center of the road is raised noticeable higher than its shoulders. This is done purposely to help with water drainage. In this case, when driving on a raised road, if you release the wheel without steering on an intended path, you may notice it pulls to one side, away from the center or inward on a curve.

If you notice pulling on your new Mercedes-Benz on curves or only on certain roads, this is likely the cause. However if you’re driving an older vehicle, or one that has been in a collision, you may be in need of an alignment. In that case, our expert staff will be more than happy to help.

    So I recently purchased a C350 coupe w/ 30k. I hit a pothole and took it to a reputable alignment guy as it was drifting to the right when I let go of the wheel. He fixed it but I brought it back in because it was still drifting to the right I even had the tires rotated in between my two visits he claims the shop guy that is that this is normal for a Mercedes is this true thank you.
