I have a recently purchased '05 Civic 1.7.
I’ve noticed that the steering takes significantly more effort to turn left than to the right. Turning right, even when moving at a good clip, I can turn using 1 finger. It takes a decent grip to make the same turn to the left. I’ve also tried this from sitting still - same thing.
The alignment, as far as driving goes, seems pretty straight. I’ve also had a Honda shop that I trust from experience look into the issue to see if there is any physical signs of damage, bent parts… anything. They are very confident that all parts related to the front steering and suspension are in good shape and that both wheels are even.
I am a little stumped as to how any physical damage would only affect turning the wheel in one direction. I wonder if there is something that would reduce the effectiveness of the power steering in just one direction???
