Alignment off in X1

So I rarely drive the X1, but when I do I swear the care viers to the left (well the steering wheel starts to tilt that way)

The wife said I was crazy.


Then compared to a new car I just got. The new car stering is straight doesn move at all.


Can it be the tires? The alignment? The steertronic?

I don't think I've ever bought a new car that's aligned to factory spec. Of course if your wife is the primary driver and doesn't notice it, I think I'd just let it go.

This is definitely possible. I just went at the dealer to swap for my winter tires today And I had to get an alignment done. The front right tire was worn out really bad on one side. I suggest that you do an alignment as well. It will prevent problem with tire wear.
