    Default Civic - 05 Pulls to Left. Fault or Default?

    What are the possible causes of pulling to left in Civic- 2005 Exi having 15” rims.

    Note that its suspension and alignment has been checked by Honda service dealer and they say it is not a fault but a “Default” of this model.

    What can be other reasons of this fault.

    My VTi 05 pulls to the left as well. Alignment is OK. During city drive its bearable but it gets annoying on the Motorway. If the tyres are not being eaten up, which they technically should, there is no use tinkering with the alignment -its by DEFAULT for sure. I'm using 15` alloys with 205 tyres.

    for the first time i have seen civic owners complaining about a civic.. before this i only heard about corolla brakes.,. if is such a common problem in civic, why hasn't honda bothered to rectify it??? means indus motors should be proud that their cars dont skid to the left
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    This issue was out of the factory and was only prevailent on EXi oddly enough. VTi didn't have it at all.

    Its fixable though, just take it to any computerised alignment shop and they'll fix it.

    This is a trademark fault in the civics. I own a 2004 civic vti oriel prosmatic and noticed the left pulling from the very first day. Took the car to the alignment centre and was told to go to Honda and get it fixed from them as the car was under warrenty. Went to Honda where they put the car on lift and loosened a few bolts from the front suspension area and aligned the front wheels by sticking two rods on each end of suspension and pulling them in opposite direction and tightened the bolts. It is actually the left front wheel which is a bit out of place, i.e. it is a bit behind the front right wheel and not in line with it.

    I dont know why people have this problem in their cars?
    I have Civic Exi 2005 and i have this car for around two years and driven around 50,000 kms and its brakes are perfect MASHALLAH. I put Yokohama Japanese tyres in it alongwith 14 inch rims and no issues of braking till today. I also have Corolla Altis 2007, which has ABS too and my Civic's brakes are as good as My Corolla Altis with an exception which is that my car has no ABS, it has 4 wheel disc brakes (Only VTi and VTi Oriel has ABS).
