  1. Alignment and balance

    Thanks for all the advice guys. The car car was new when I bought it and guess those tyres could have grooved into the way the car was pulling hence me never actually noticing it. It was just strange that literally driving out of the original tyre depot I noticed that the steering wheel was no longer centre. Only reason for not going back then was that I was away from home and had a meeting I had to attend (so thought I would sort it when I got home). It was on the drive back at the higher speed that I notIced the vibrations. They are the 19inch (just in case it makes any difference). JC; the car has been back three times and the last time they fixed the steering wheel with some device (so it couldn’t move) and then adjusted the rods. With regard to the pulling. If I hold it centre it drifts massively right. I appreciate the road had some help in that but I drove another Kadjar a few weeks back and was no where near as bad. its going in on Tuesday for some other work and so I am going to leave it with them till we get a sensible solution/answer
  2. I recently had my front tyres changed after which the car has never quite been the same. The change was done at a big national company and it’s unbelievable that they can not actually do what they are paid to do. I drove the car home (got the wheels changed it Wales, but actually live in London) and the car had awful vibrations through the steering wheel at motorway speeds and the steering wheel just wouldn’t sit straight. I took it to a more specialist tyre company who rebalanced the tyres (apperently they were 80g out) and did the alignment. However, even after the alignment was done the steering wheel still wouldn’t sit correctly. Went back they made some slight adjustments and we tried again. Still no luck, car has a definite pull to the right and the steering wheel wants to sit off centre (but more to the left). It has been back again and I have got the print out from the check. Front wheels are all in the green as is the right rear. However, the left rear is massively out. They tell me that the rear tyres can not be adjusted as they are fixed. They reckon it is likely a manufacturing fault 1)Could this be causing the issue (it’s certainly only more pronounced since I had the wheels changed) 2) has anyone else had an alignment check and how were the rears? thanks in advance
  3. LifeShine Failure

    Hi I was given the car a good clean the weekend gone and have notice what can only be describes as what looks like spotting on the paintwork (giving off a rainbow colour). I thought perhaps they would disappear once the car dries and when i tried polishing it, they still remained. My thought is that either the paint itself is failing or perhaps the lifeshine that was put on is not working properly. Has anyone else had this problem? Cheers.

  5. Damged

    Can you use alloygators on diamond cut alloys? I had always read that due to moisture build up it was not recommended. Having seen my last alloys scratched so badly could do with something that is going to protect these.
  6. Delivery time update

    Thanks Dave. i guessed that was the scenario. They had 3 specific colours they had to offer (at a very good price of course 😄). So hopefully they will just arrange for the transport at earliest time. it does say on the order form, expected 31/3. Which would be nice.
  7. Delivery time update

    We ordered ours yesterday (1.6 signature nav) and we were told it would only be 2 weeks as they had some down in the docks . Wonder whether this was just salesmans talk, as it appears everyone else had much longer wait.
