This is the purpose of PDI though and minor adjustments is rather common.
The difference here is that you got the car shortly after it being delivered to the dealership (whether it be a few days or hours) instead of it sitting on the lot for weeks or months like most new cars thus giving the dealership time to fix these things.
Thousands of parts being put together for the first time will need time to settle, this is normal.No kidding. That's something they should be addressing on the line.
Every single preproduction mk5 had body lines around the clam shell hood that looked like a 3 year old did the alignment. I couldn't believe they put those cars in front of cameras looking like that.Thousands of parts being put together for the first time will need time to settle, this is normal.
Interesting insight. Appreciate it!I have seen more than one BMW with "questionable" hood alignment caused by nothing more than the dual-latch hood not being latched on both sides. These hood latches seem to really elude some folks. Some bozos will actually try to readjust the hood alignment without realizing they are still not closing the hood properly and latching both sides. So be absolutely sure it's latched correctly and both sides are latched. Typical way is to lower it to about 20" above the bottom and then gently but deliberately "throw" it downward. It will give you a pucker the first time you do it but it works like a charm. If you see someone pressing on the hood to get it to latch, ban them from your Supra.
I have also seen BMWs with bad body fit of the hood panel, and it boggles my mind they left the factory that way. Thankfully it's easy to adjust the hoods. You can use a condom over the hinge bolts to keep from chipping the paint off with your wrench.
LOL this can happen on any car make or model. Thousands of parts are put together in rapid succession then shipped thousands of miles to its destination, there will be some settling (this happens on Toyotas too :gasp.) Seems ridiculous to think this is a quality control issue and not a standard procedure across all manufacturers, this is why PDI exists in the first place.Yes, preproduction, as in they should have figured this shit out by now and the OP shouldn't have received a car with alignment problems. Seems ridiculous they would allow a car to leave the factory like that.
