    I hope someone can help me here. I have a new 2003 CRV-LX 5sp. The steering
    wheel has to be turned slightly to the left to go straight, not just on a
    high crowned road, but on any surface. It drives to the right on the road if
    I let go of the wheel, when I accelerate from a stop, or with heavy
    breaking. I had it into the dealer at 2500 miles and they said it was
    slightly out of spec. and did a 4 wheel alighnment on it and it still goes
    to the right. it has 3000 miles on it now and I've had it for 2 months.
    Has anyone had a similar problem? I live 75 miles from the nearest dealer
    and can't be running back and forth all the time. I know there is a service
    bulletin about this but my car is outside the VIN range and not an
    automatic. I wanted to hear some other opinions before I take it back again,
    which means taking off of work 2 hours early and having someone follow me to
    the dealer and take me back the next day.
    Does Honda have a consumer help dept.? I sold my worn out Subaru and got
    this because I heard that they were trouble free.
    Thanks for any advice.

    I had this on my 2002 CRV. Dealer did alignment and then had me go for
    a ride (about 10 miles) with service technician in the car to make
    sure it was adjusted to my satisfaction before leaving the dealership.

    I have the same problem on 2003 CRV EX with 8k miles on it.
    The steering wheel is misaligned and needs to be a little to the left for
    the car to go straight. Otherwise the car doesn't pull to one side like it
    would have a twisted frame. For me this is more of an annoyance than a
    I'll have the dealer take a look at it when I take it for the 10k

  4. Your vehicle is under warranty--take advantage of it. Take it to the
    dealer and tell them the problem. They will fix it for free. Don't try to
    fix it yourself.
