ever since i got the car, my steering wheel has always pointed slightly to the left.

i'm getting it checked in a week, but has anyone else noticed this?

Maybe it's a wheel alignment problem? Incorrect tire inflation?

Just throwing some reasonable, albeit possibly wrong, things out there.

Thanks...I'm pretty sure it's just an alignment problem, nothing major.

It's just that it was like this ever since I got it from the dealer with around 200 miles on it and I'm trying to see if it was the test drives before I got the car that messed it up or if it was from the factory.

The electric steer relies on signals from the rotar and transmitor on the steering input sensor for position. Thgey really don't care where they are in space, as long as they get a course and fine wave that are repeatable over 360 degrees. The mechanical position of the wheel does not always match this "zeroed" position of the wheel. If the starting position or zero position bothers you, it should be easy for the dealer to reset.
