Alignment sheet explanation. Anyone?

Checked the alignment with the dealer due to the light feeling of the steering wheel. They looked at my car, checked the alignment, tire pressure and claimed that everything was ok. No problem with the steering whatsoever.
Does this alignment sheet look ok or it's better to get an alignment check at local tire shop.

Thanks.

Right off the bat, your toe is fucked up, front and rear. Technically they all look to be within OEM spec, but OEM spec is a range that leaves a bit of variance, not a number. Go to a performance alignment shop and get it aligned to a number. Shoot for 0 toe in the front and slight toe-in in the rear. I'm guessing the slight toe out on the front and a lot of toe out on the rear is what's giving you the floaty feeling, but others will be able to say more than I can.

I tagged RCE; hopefully they come and offer their expertise.

If you're in Irvine talk with @CSG Mike as well. They're local to you, and very very experienced.

Firestone does lifetime alignments. Pay once,and go back and get it aligned for free for as long as you own the car.

Toe angel kills tires faster than anything. You really don't want any toe angle at all for a daily driver.
