Hello,

I was wondering if it is normal for a new car to lightly pull left. If I take my hands off the steering wheel, it starts turning slightly left by itself. I have tried this in all type of roads (even on the right lane of M25) and the result is the same.

It sounds like the alignment is out slightly. You can get this checked over by the dealer.

It could also be the natural camber of the road. A lot of the roads round near me have a slight camber to the left, presumably to channel surface water to the drains, and the car always moves slightly left on those. There are, however, a few flat roads and a few that camber to the right and the car always follows that camber when I take my hands off the steering wheel. I've not noticed any problem with adverse tyre wear due to this over the years.
