    Well from the very first day my linea classic was pulling towards left.When I checked it out from alignment shop, I was told, after inspection that there is error in front wheel alignment which they corrected later on, but said that the rear wheels are also not aligned correctly.Tell me friend has any one else faced the same problem if yes do share it .

    Many of the forum members seem to be LEFTIST! (Pun intended!).

    @wasim akram, I suggest you search the forum for discussion on this issue and you can find some clue. All the best.

    Do post here, if you find any solution. Facing same problem, the alignment shops aren't able to fix it.
    I'm aware, it inherent nature of these car(s), but there should be a way to fix it

    Don't forget cambering of Indian roads too.

    I also felt a slight left pull initially on my Evo 90 HP, but @5000 kms service, i got it resolved by aligning the steering.

    Also, road cambering is a major reason for this. People having a genuine left pull, start getting pain on their right hand, as it needs to be corrected now and then. So, if you arent getting any pain, i dont think there is any problem. This problem is over-hyped. Some months back, Fiat had changed the alignment settings to arrest this problem. I hope you got it updated to the latest values.

    Also, as @prabhjot had mentioned before, because of our HPS unit, we get a more realistic feedback of the roads, which also adds to this confusion.

    Many have reported the issue on this forum. Is it a deal breaker?
    HPS would definitely give a slight left pull due to camber.

    When I owned a new swift during my first few months of ownership, I also felt the left pulling issue. Then I used to ask service personnel repeatedly about the same and they did alignment and then simply said there is nothing wrong in alignment. So even in EPS this could occur but felt less. After around 5000 kms things became easier and the left pull gradually reduced. Cambering will always be there in Roads.
    Then I bought my Punto this Oct 15. To my amuse, there was no left pull unlike the one I felt in Swift. Great for a car which is more heavier than swift. Monitor right tire pressure, one can drive in a single laned roads in towns to understand pull better.
