    Default Steering Wheel Squint!

    Would anybody know why my steering wheel is not level when I'm driving in a straight line. (It looks like I'm turning slighty left)
    When I first test drove it before I bought it I'm sure when I was travelling in a straight line the steering wheel was level. Before I collected it the deeler put two new front tyres on it could this have caused the problem? Or could the tracking be out.
    If I let go of the steering wheel the car doesn't seem to pull the the side of the road!
    Does anybody have any ideas??

    Thanks
    Jase

    its just when they set the tracking the wheel wasnt level but if it goes in a straight line the traking is ok

    it just looks a but funny

    its onlt about £15 to get the tracking done or maybe vauxhall may do it for free for you if your nice to them

    yep, thats the fix..get it retracked, but this time with a level wheel..

    if they've put new tyres on it, check 1st that they have equal pressure in them as the Vectra/signum is quite sensitive to tyre pressures.. if one is low it will tend to wander..even if it's just a couple of PSI
