My car, Mitsubishi Lancer gts model 2008 is pulling to the side. I got this car new, it was pulling to the left from the beginning. After they did an alignment, the car is pulling to the right. The amount of pulling is very big, for example if, at 60-65mph I release the steering wheel it rotates right instantly with a half a inch, and the car changes the lane to the right in 3-4 seconds. I don't know if the car or the tires are wrong, but this is very serioos safety concern for me. I've search on the internet for people with similar issue, and found out that most of the people with Mitsubishi Lancer gts have this problem. So I believe Mitsubishi knows about this problem but just don't want to admit it. Please see this link (15 pages): forums.evolutionm.net/showthread.php?T=293784. Thanks a lot and please contact me if you need additional information.

Car constantly pulls to left, even after repeat alignments by dealer. Has been services 3 times within 9 months. No improvement has been made. Front tires are now going bald after 10,000 miles.

My husband and I both purchased 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer gts. Two vehicles within 3 weeks of each other in October. Chad's care has 13,000 miles mine 15,000 miles. Both cars need new tires. The front tires are down to the thread on both cars. The back tires on mine are passes wear lines. Chad's tires in the back are a little bit better. Of course when calling the local dealership which is 45-60 minutes away from my house they informed me that there was nothing they could do for me. Surprise ! what do I do now and where else can I turn? please help! email us if you have any ideas.

The car pulls to the left very strongly, and have had the car at the dealership 3-4 times to have them try and fix it with no avail. They aligned it and rotated the tires, but this fixed nothing. I stressed my concern with this that the tires would wear out fast since it isn't aligned right, and now, at 4300 miles, all four tires are worn out bad, feathered on the outside, and inside is almost down to 2/32nds, and the dealership I bought the car from refuses to do anything about it. I filed a claim with mitusbishi themselves, and after reviewing the case, said the car is fine, and all four tires have even wear and they closed the case, even though all the tires are worn out different, some worse than others, and the car still pulls to the left.
