I've been searching the forum and the 'net and cannot find an answer as to whether the Volt has adjustable caster and camber in front. I'm particularly interested in caster as mine has a slight pull to the left and very slight steering wheel off-center. Rotated my new tires and pull is the same. I never noticed it with the old tires.

The chassis' response to a castor adjustment is usually very 'strong' and you may end up making the situation worse.

Why do you think the steering wheel is 'out'? Have you had anyone adjusting the toe-in/out, or any work involving that?

After my bearing the wheel did not sit 'exactly' straight and nor was the toe-in right, IMHO. As car suspensions age, it is usually best to increase toe-in to accommodate wear and tear.

A toe-out set-up will exaggerate the camber of the roads and wear patterns of the tyres.

Resetting the castor would be an extreme action, which should come after investigating newer tyres and a 'more-straight-ahead' setting than is recommended for a new car.
