    Nope, no solution known as yet. The left pull is quite un-noticable unless you're revving it real hard!

    man yes its a company prob and they cant fix it ...

    Claiming the warranty thing doesnt matter... as they directly say: Sir yeh problem to is mein hai... yeh fix nahi ho rahi hum say... trust me i have heard tht people went to toyota to fix this issue too lol

    its there with 99% civics...

    @naxun
    well I am sad to hear that your alto had this prob too... glad its solved but man its really insane when you buy almost a 2m car here and it has issues that couldnt get solved lol


    but i am sure is ka kaheen to hal hoga.. and So i am waiting for any Pakwheeler to reply me a solution

    if your car is fine, and other things are fine, then that pull is normal, torque-steer is what you call it, but that only happens when you rev it hard, since these FWD cars don't have a differential in the center, it has to be like this. Some one can explain that better than me please?

    ^^ we are talking about like driving at the speed of 60 constant on a flat road and if we leave the steering wheel, the car will pull left

    I agree with syncview. This is Torque Steering. Its nothing to do with alignment or camber type things. If that was the issue then that could have been easily fixed even by an ordinary alignment wala.

    This is a chronic problem in Civics.

    Its almost in any FWD car, because there is no center differential.. if the diff is the center, that won't happen.. but since it isn't, it happens, even in a mehran, since the left axle rod is shorter than the right axle rod...

    Damn, I can't explain things. I meant to say that, IF the alignment is fine, the bushings are good. and there nothing wrong with the camber and things, then its the torque steer.

    It happens in corolla too but due to its softer suspension, it becomes even negligible, but in civic, one can easily notice due to its harder suspension.
