I finally got to drive the car today. The person who owned it did take the car in for all the scheduled maintenence, but I doubt if the work was really done. The engine mounts were obviously shot as the rubber was mostly gone and the engine sat crooked in the compartment. The right side strut didn't look bad or bounce much, but the car pulled to the right badly. The tires were worn evenly so I guess this has something to do with engine mounts instead of the suspension. All the service was performed by the dealer and he had reciepts to prove it. I guess this particular dealer may be just a little crooked. They charged him over $700 just for tires! Thanks again for your advice. I'll keep looking.
