steering wheel turning when accelerating

Asked by Mar 03, 2011 at 04:12 AM about the 2007 Mazda MAZDA3

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 mazda 3 and when I'm at a dead stop and I accelerate the steering wheel
turns all the way to the left. I already did a alignment and I changed the tire. What would
cause this problem?

its whats called torque steer it has nothing to do with alignment these cars have more torque than most of this class so it trys to pull due to unequal drive shafts
