Did you take it into Matrix? How did it turn out?
I originally had my car aligned at the dealer. Results were great for about two weeks and then things started to deteriorate really quickly. Made no changes and didn't hit anything (they did leave the bottom cover lose and flapping around, so it just makes me wonder if they missed something else).
The steering feels very loose and I am pulling all over the place, I don't even feel safe changing lanes any more.
Anyway, that is really off topic, but I wanted to get some opinions and also hear some more feedback on some good shops for alignment in the Portland area.
