Has anyone experienced torque steer in their CVT 1.5T car? It's a known problem in any FWD vehicle, some worse than others. Higher power output exacerbates it in some applications. I just want to be ready when ours finally arrives.

I have not heard of any complaints for the new Civics, in fact the industry can't figure out how the 300+hp Type R has almost no torque steer.

Traction/stability control solves this issue.
I hadn't thought of that. My other car has all the electronic nannies but it's RWD. It didn't occur to me that they would counteract torque steer in a FWD car. Thanks.
