    Default Civic VTI Oriel Prosmatic Alignment Problem

    Guys - I have bought a new Civic. I am experiencing a problem that if i do not hold the steering, the car tends to turn to left. It feels as if it has an alignment problem. I cant expect such a problem to be in a new car specially when it is not a suzuki . I have tested this on a straight road. The car tends to turn more if the speed is slow.

    BTW I still have to change the tyres but I need to resolve this issue b4 doing so.

    I just want to know if anybody experienced such an issue with his new civic and whats the solution? so basically the question is:

    Jaltay ho tum bhi kya aisee hi aag mein
    Ya ye agan he mere hi bhaag mein

    L O L ! r u serious? Honda is still having the same fault it did since 2001 and plus models? D A M N ...........
    nothing to worry about. its cam adjustment and good alignment would probably fix it
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Disgusting but relieving in a way as it seems that this is not a problem specific to my car...

    Anyother pak wheeler with a new Civic 1.8 had the same problem to be sure...?

    Honda or Toyota for that matter do not perform alignment on the vehicle during the PDI process. Check tire pressure and have it realigned. Should be a-ok.

    I have already adjusted the tyre pressure (from a digital meter) to make this precise but it didnt help.

    Alignment should be the answer.

    And why do you want to change the tireS?

    Honda ATLAS has had suspension probs since the 2001 model onwards... the new generation Pakistani Civic suffers the same prob... local car makers are just here to make money and thats about it... im extremely sorry to tell you, but the suspension will start making noises after 50k or so, considering the road conditions of khi
