    wats the condition of tyres, is there any visible uneven wear & tear on the front tyres? i mean outer or inner side more worn out.
    Get alignment done from 3s dealership. if even then it pulls to a side (i must say the same side), then try this
    1. interchange ur front tyres & check. sometimes tyres deform & car starts pulling to 1 side. if after interchanging front tyres ur car start pulling to opposite side (right instead of left) then ur tyres are deformed. if the car keeps pulling 2wards same side (left) after xchange then goto step 2
    2. Check ur suspension. check gap between front fenders to tyres by hand, i mean distance between the upper edge of tyres & lower end of fenders. if ur height on both sides is not equal then ur car will pull to 1 side wat so ever u do. it means a coil spring has given up (beth gaya hai in local language). change it but change both front then.
    3. If above 2 r ok then check front rubber bushings of suspension. a broken rubber bush can b a source of prob.
    4. Lastly check play in steering ends & wheel bearings.

    Try to contact Zafcom at Gizri and speak to Ali or Omer,
    I have been going to them for allignment and tires for the last 6-7 years and have never had any problems, ever,
    as their allignment guy Mustafa to have a look and tell you what's wrong, he would be able to advise you on what you need to get done i.e. replacement of suspension components if necessary prior to doing the allignment,
    also check to see if your rims are true, a bend or kink in the rim would also possibly be the culprit or at least contribute to the problem

    Known issue. Stop wasting time/money on this.. No matter what you do. 2004 / 2005 model will never stop going to LEFT. Even honda ppl admit it and advise not to get the wheels aligned for this issue.
