If the alignment is absolutely spot on and accurate.

How is the tire pressure? Make sure all four tires are exactly 35PSI. Are all the tires the same brand and size? Is one newer than the rest? I know, silly question, but you'd be surprised how many folks run different brands and sizes on a AWD vehicle which is a big no no. And a new tire mixed with old tires will have a different diameter and can cause pulling if mounted on the front.

Check the brakes. A brake pad binding or caliper sticking will make a car pull left/right. See if the wheel and or hub is very hot or smoking after driving.

Those are the only three issues outside of an alignment that will make your car pull.

And please, don't post the same question on multiple threads. Keep it to one. :)

My wife's 2012 Pilot has pulled very very slightly to the right for a while now. I only drive it a couple times a year and noticed it yesterday when testing after fluid maintenance. To me, the steering wheel also has a lot of play in it, but I drive a 2017 CR-V as my daily which is of course newer and much tighter when steering.

I've had bad lower control arm bushings (Honda calls them compliance bushings) and a bad tire cause a pull. The shop should've checked out the suspension during the alignment.

Check your inner tie rods.

From the alignment report, what was the cross camber, front and rear?

Swap your new tires side to side and see if the problem moves. Especially if the problem started when you had the new tires installed.

Does it always pull hard? Or does it sometimes feel like it doesn’t pull as hard at times? If it’s not tire pull or worn bushings (control arm) could be a strut binding. That’s pretty common to cause a really hard pull but typically it will let up once and a while when driving.
