I just had my 2014 Honda Odyssey's wheels rotated. Now my car pulls to the left on the freeway. Could they have messed up my alignment?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Roberta, I would double check your tire pressures first, if your still pulling them I would return for an inspection of alignment.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at There may be an issue with your tires. I'd go back & have them inspect the tires and/or unrotate them & see how it feels then.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive It is unlikley that just rotating the tires would do anything to the alignment. You may have a tire lower on air (just a few pounds off will do it) or an issue with a tire that got moved up front.

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists Hi Roberta, On your 2014 Odyssey: Rotating the tires would not usually cause a pulling. I would recommend going back to the shop (dealer) to have them double check the work done. They should road test the vehicle to verify your concern. If the tires are put back to original location and the pulling goes away, chances are it's the tires. Because your vehicle is a 2014, it most likely is under warranty (since you don't mention the mileage). Good luck.

Julie Scroggins, Vice President, CFO at Waukegan Tire and Supply Company Inc. Hi Roberta, Rotating the tires won't change the alignment on the van. It sounds to me like your tire might have irregular wear or possibly a belt shifted inside the tire. Have the shop check the tires for wear or damage. If they swap the front tires side to side and the van pulls the other way it confirms that the pull is being caused by a tire and one or two may need to be replaced. Good luck! JKS
