Alignment - pls review my after specs

Brand new 2023 TRD OR Premium now with 200 miles, Bone stock . Had 6 miles when picked up from dealer.

After I picked it up I noticed the steering wheel was off & centering at about 11 o"clock & steering just didn't feel right (felt loose). Went back to dealer they indicated it was out of alignment & performed an alignment. Tires are all at 32 cold.

My previous recent vehicles were a 2011 SR5 & a 2017 SR5 Premium (both completely stock) so I'm familiar with the driving feel of the Runners.

Here's the after alignment specs - Thoughts? Thanks

Where's the rest of it? That's only the before page, assuming they did something there should be an after too. That seems to say it didn't need an alignment and nothing was done? And that doesn't seem to be a full alignment either. Doesn't include caster

Here's an alignment sheet format that I have seen frequently. I downloaded it so don't hate on the Ford Flex alignment

They never gave me the full alignment sheets before and after the first time I went to the dealer. That's what has me a bit uneasy.

- To help clear up the sequence:
Brought new runner to dealer to check alignment after 1st week of ownership.

Alignment was off based on the initial check they do when you drive in to service area.
That day they performed the new alignment.

I brought it back a week later (today) and this was all I got.

Guess another visit is in order.

There arent any after specs because they didn't perform an alignment.
It says on the bottom "No Alignment Adjustments Needed".

Based on what you posted, they either lied to you about doing an alignment, or they did one and never gave you the results. If the only alignment they checked was the drive thru one and they never actually strapped it to a true alignment rack, then it was just a waste of your time. You may need to have your Castor pushed forward a touch to help stabilize how the vehicle tracks, but without seeing your castor measurement, we'll never know.

if the driving experience hasn't changed since the first visit, you'll need to have a solid conversation with a service advisor about the symptoms, or take it to a real alignment shop and pay someone to do an actual alignment.

Thanks all - here's an update

Went to a different dealer and had a complete alignment done (what I expected from the 1st dealer I went to). My Runner tracks much better, steering wheel is perfectly straight.

Here's the new alignment specs:

That's a pretty crap alignment. I'm my local 4runner groups alignment specialist. I will post some examples for ideal 5th gen alignments. Are you lifted or running bigger tires?
