    Default 4 wheel alignment again.!!!!!!!

    Done just 15k and the car needs 4 wheel alignment again on rear wheels scrubbing on outside edges.

    This was done at 8k now on 23k i know pot holes can knock it out but does vectra seem to suffer more?

    Well I've owned 3 Vectra Cs now and never had this issue on any. Only had 4 wheel alignment done on the last two. I do lots of miles too and all my tyres wear evenly.

    Something clearly wrong if the alignment needs adjusting again at the next tyre change
    Was it rechecked after the initial alignment?
    It is normal practice to check and adjust, and if adjustment was required to recommend a further check at between 500 and 1000 miles

    You should have it done when new tyres are fitted really, not before.

    Please don't fit budget Tyres either as these can wear very odd ways at times. Defo only have it checked with new Tyres on not the old though

    I assume that the rear suspension arm has been checked for wear. Biggest cause of worn rear tyres on the Vectra
