Honda Civic - pulling to left - peteH
I have a honda civic. The car pull to the left (i.e will change lanes on a motorway in a couple of seconds)

When travelling in a straight line the steering wheel points slightly right (maybe 10 degrees).

Front tyres have been replaced, and wheels swapped round. No Change?

Is this likley to benefit from tracking or 4 Wheel Aligment? What is the correct option for this case? How much should I expect to pay for a check and adjustment?

Make sure the tyres are all in good shape and pumped up correctly. Take it to local friendly tyre emporium and ask them to check the tracking (£20 ish). This is causing you the problem.

When they do it, make sure they center the wheel and fix it in place. Take for test run then return it for a recheck after its "settled".

A dealer can also adjust it, you can also ask the dealer for a full geometry check but that will cost and may not be needed at this stage(£50+).

Good luck

Tracking should cure it,as long as its done correctly,ie steering wheel in straight position -track rods adjusted either side not just one side as some do!

chances are that just a tracking adjustment will sort your problem out,however the civic has adjustable rear suspension (toe setting only )also so a 4 wheel alignment check might be prudent to ensure the rear is set up to spec , before any adjustment is carried out to the front end.

if it aint broke don`t fix it

Thanks for all your help.

Asked for a couple of quotes (links from www.alignmycar.co.uk/ )

I wont name (yet) but prices given so far are:

One supplier quoted £11.75 for a full check and report, and Front wheel adjustment from £32.31inc (for a full quote a report is needed - i.e £11.75)

Another offers full wheel alignment for £65, but offers a free check, and only charge if you asked them to adjust. If only two wheel alignment, the check is free and if adjustment is required the cost is £27.50

This seems a reasonable deal? How does it compare to what others have been quoted?

Hi Pete

I have a new civic where the steering wheel is not level when driving in a straight line and pulls to the left when you put the steering wheel level.
Did you get anywhere with your issue?

After eleven years I'd be surprised if you get an answer.

I may be wrong.
