My 2008 honda civic Lx Coupe Has Under 8000 Miles And Is Experiencing A Noticeable Drift To The Right. I Had The Vehicle Serviced At A honda Dealership And The Alignment Was Corrected. The Problem Was Resolved For A Couple Of Weeks But Has Now Surfaced Again. The Vehicle Is Pulling To The Right And The Steering Wheel Must Be Held To The Left To Compensate For The Problem. The Vehicle Has Not Been Involved In An Accident Or Event That Would Have Damaged Any Components. This Appears To Be A Manufacturing Defect. *tr

I Was Driving At About 65 Mph When My Car Suddenly Started Swerving To My Left. I Pressed My Brakes And I Heard A Little Explosion, But I Didn’t Think Anything Of It. My Car Started Swerving Even More And I Was Not Able To Do Anything Because It Was Out Of My Control. My Car Spun And Hit Another Car And Then Spun Again And Ended Up Crashing Into The Left Side Divider. When Police Arrived At The Scene, They Noticed My Wheel Was Popped Out. The Wheel Malfunction Must Have Caused The Accident Because The Wheel Popped Out Even Before I Hit The Divider. *tr

Front Suspension Steering There Is A Clunking Or Snapping Sound When Turning Or Making A U Turn Left. Took It To The honda Dealer And There Was No Cause For The Noise. The Dealer Replaced The Entire Left Front Assembly; Left Drive Shaft, Cv Joint, Hub And Bearings. Then The Dealer Checked The Rack And Pinion And Found That They Were Not Torqued Correctly And Was Reset To Factory Specs. Well One Year Later The Clunking And Snapping Sound Slowly Returned. And While Making Slow Left Turns. It Happens On And Off. Now Its Passed Warranty.
