Got a 2015 Honda pilot and it pulls right. Tried different tires and the shop I bought it cant correct it. Says is a torque pull. They want to try to shim one motor mount to change the geometry. I trust them been going to them for 25 years and they do frame alignments. No wrecks on this that we can see.

Any one else with a pilot that does this? I drove 4 of them and they all do it. Its a CPO think I should fight the dealership?

thanks

Are you just driving in the right hand lane on the highway? Could be just pull from the crown of the road.

How far are you from Baton Rouge?

If you are within 100 miles, I'd seriously consider going to BR and taking it to AGCO

My '13 doesn't pull right, except when following the road crown.

I've heard of bad engine mounts causing a pull. Don't know your mileage but VCM is known to prematurely damage the active mount on these trucks. Your shop should closely look at that mount, if they haven't done so already.

Doe it pull right in neutral?
Make sure rear toe is correct and minimal. Also no total toe-in on the front. You shouldn't see torque steer at low torque cruising. The diff should power the unloaded left front tire following a crown you would think.

Active mounts are front and rear, should not have any affect except a vibration when VCM is engaged.

Check the right front brake for sticking either at the piston or pins.

Yes AGCO is the best been going to them 30 years but it has a warranty. Thanks for thinking about brakes. I have them check that

Got it fixed at dealer. The castor is not adjustable. Tech said normally when caster is out they check for frame or strut damage. Turns out it was the strut. Replaced and all good. may be the strut was slightly bent??

thanks

Unless the mount is wasted and then you'll feel it all the time.
