Steering wheel tilt covered by Kia warranty?

    Hi folks
    recently got a 2009 Kia C'eed with 115000km on clock so still inn warranty. have noticed the steering wheel pulls slightly to the left and and I can feel a bit of a judder when going over bumpy roads in 1st and 2nd gear (ie low speed). I know going over a bumpy road will judder :rolleyes: but this feels more so than in my octavia.
    Just wondering if this would be covered by kia warranty and if not im guessing Im better off going to a "normal" mechanic for a service rather than the kia guys? My experience of brand garages (not naming any Skoda garages at ALL ;)) is they are an expensive rip off.

    Pulling slightly is more than likely a tracking issue. Not covered.

    Judder over bumps sounds like wear somewhere in the steering/suspension. Again not covered.

    Pulling to left is a common issue with many reasons, from tyre pressure to linkage or suspension problems.
    You can always take it back and have one of their mechs have a look.
