Default PT Pulling To Right

<img src=icon_smile_clown.gif border=0 align=middle> My Wifes 2002 PT only Has 3600 Miles, and it is going back to the shop for the third time for the same problem. It has been pulling to the right so bad that at even 25 mph, if you take your hands off the wheel for a few seconds, you would be running people off the sidewalk. The dealer has done an alignment and roatated the tires, but we still have the problem. It is going back on Monday for a third attempt to fix our problem. To MY ammazment, the Sales Manager has said that because of the "CAB FORWARD DESIGN" that all these cars as well as a couple of other makes and models. I have NEVER heard of such a thing in my life. Has anyone else been told this? I doubt it. Comments would be enjoyed. Have a great day.

Sounds like your sales manager has his head up where the sun don't shine. Pulling to the right (or left) has absolutely nothing to do with the "cab foreward" design. Several people have had problems with the Goodyear tires causing a pull, also the brake caliper assy could have a problem. Talk with your service manager, ignore the sales manager.
