The drifting to the right could be due to the crown of the road. Does it drift to the left if you are on the left side of the road?

usually not. I've seen it do it a couple times. Dealership service said alignment came out ok both times... this NX is brand new. I've never experienced this with any other car I've driven. (Honda CRV, toyota camry, ford explorer)

Lol, why do you have to slip in every post some shot at Lexus because you have German cars? NO Lexus is an "economy" car.

Anyway, my FWD 200t does this too and it's annoying, but it's not a big problem.

Bringing up this older thread. I feel a right drift as well and taken it to the dealer for adjustment. It still has the same issue. They even said they did a subframe adjustment. Is that right???? Problem still persists a month later. I am going to take it back.

On acceleration = torque steer
On a non-flat road = road crown
Straight line flat road = alignment


And to anyone who complains about the NX torque steering...I assure you the ever so tiny little pull to the right maybe is nothing compared to a 300+whp FWD car where it will try to rip the steering wheel out of your hands.

2016 AWD F-Sport, right drift on all roads either flat, crown, and/or freeway. Even compensating for wind direction, I would go on a strip of road both ways. All pulls to right.

Then it's out of alignment.

Have them drive with you and see it, make sure it's corrected after.

Not all alignment racks are equal either or calibrated frequently enough. The dealer could have a bad rack to begin with so another dealer might be a good idea.
