Hi, My 2019 XC90 is little more than 1 year old (OSD delivery was in Nov 2018 and US delivery was on Jan 24th 2019). I noticed that car pulls to right immediately after taking the delivery in USA. After procrastinating for a while, it took it to my local Volvo dealer who initially claimed that all cars pull the right because of natural slope of the roadways but finally agreed to check it. They found the wheels were misaligned, fixed it and initially tried to charge me for it but eventually agreed that it's covered under warranty. After I drove it for few miles, I realized that it's better than before but still pulls to the right. So, I took it again to the dealer, they check the alignment again, said it's dead center but agreed that car still pulls to the right after a test drive. This time they purposefully set the alignment 0.1 degrees to the left and assured me that will fix the problem. Again, alignment got better than before but still not dead center. This was about 6 months ago. Since then alignment seems to have got worse and it doesn't look my local dealer knows in SF East Bay knows how to diagnose and fix it. Since the car was pulling to the right even when their alignment machine indicated no issues, perhaps the issue is not with the wheel alignment but something else.
Should I take the car to an independent shop to get it checked or try a different Volvo dealer? I'm not sure if Volvo will cover it under warranty. Did any one else had a similar issue with the alignment?
