I have a little over 4,000 miles on my 6s, and i've begun to notice that my steering wheel tends to drift to the left (and rarely/never to the right).

At first, I thought that my front left tire was a little low on air... but I checked em all, 30 psi. (recommended 29-31, yeah, they look a little flat). Any feedback, thoughts, comments... ?? thanks.

btw.. I remember glancing over a topic that might've been the same as this one (and I apologize for the repeat) but I wasn't experiencing any problems at the time, so I didnt bother to read it. :p thanks again.

I say alignment too, because I can drive straight down the road without my hands on the steering wheel.

I kinda noticed it too.. Can it be the load condition? I should check it again on flat straight load again..

ichi, where do you go for the service in vancouver?

That's funny...mine is drifting the OTHER direction...I thought it was the shape of the roads but it seems to drift right no matter what lane/road/whatever I'm in.

At least the service adjustments are included for 12/12000. I took it to the dealer at 1000 miles and he said give it a little bit more time for the bushings to fully seat, etc.

I took mine to the dealer yesterday because mine was drifting to the right, they said the alignment was the same as the mazda specs, but I still have a drift, so if anyone finds out please post it.

Yep, mine drifts to the left, did from day one with 28 miles on it. I thought maybe it was because of being in the left lane, but when I go to the right lane, it goes straight for a little while, and then starts going to the left. I don't notice it as much at slower speeds on secondary roads, but it's still there. Planning to mention it to the dealer tomorrow.

Mine does this, had tracking checked, and everything is perfect, still drifts, checked tyres, still drifts. Gotta take it to the garage some time, and if a tyre has worn excessivly then they can change it FOC.
