My 2018 acura pulls to the right with even the minimal

Customer Question
My 2018 acura pulls...

My 2018 acura pulls to the right with even the minimal amount of road crown. The adjusted the toe in a bit but it is still a problerm. Not fun to drive on long trips since most freeways tend to have road crown that falls to the right.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '18 Acura?

2108 rdx fwd

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Took it to the dealer. their techs said that is just road crown. the steering has such a heavy feel at center that when it pulls right it is wearing on me to keep steering to the left to keep it in line

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked your tire pressure? Is it a steady pull?

No, just on roads with any crown at all. my cad cts did it but they did a really good alignment on it and never had issues after that

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, other than that I love the car. bought it in sept

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you tried taking it to a different dealer? Not all dealers are the same and some will do more to fix a problem than others

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
