    @ajith uday, Did you check on a straight road without any inclinations?

    If even after alignment you face this issue, get a second opinion from a tyre shop outside. If the problem still persists, check the under body in a ramp at the service center for any bents.

    Roads are often inclined/'cambered' to the left, to help drainage. At higher speeds with the super feelsome steering you get to feel that leftward drift, that's all. Of course, check the alignment, change the tyres L<-->R, and be sure they are evenly inflated.

    Get the alignment checked at outside tire shop,

    FASS people don't know how to do alignment.

    My tires gave up in just 22k kms,

    Later I got it checked at an outside tire shop,

    Then came to know that car has alignment issues,

    But FASS always claimed that alignment is fine.

    Since then I never get it checked at FASS,

    Though I got the refund of damaged tires from Fiat.

    Which is 18 grand in total on pro rata basis.

    I had the same issue with my brand new GP. the alignment was so bad, with just 700km run, the front two tyres were worn-out to max, went to fiat VECTO, they were ready to take pictures of the damaged tyre and sent it to fiat, post that there were no follow-ups from VECTO, hence had to call fiat and they instructed the VECTO to get it rectified. I got the tyres changed. Only one as of now, they have promised to change the other one too in the upcoming service.

    Fiat cars have this alignment issues a lot. I have heard and seen many complaining about this.

    As many have told, banking is the road is always toward left so, you need to carefully observe the pulling in the straight highways.

    Along with wheel alignment, please check if there is any damage to ur front left suspension.

    I had this same problem, tried balancing and alignment umpteen number of times and finally FASS checked the suspension and the lower arm was bent itseams. They replaced it under warranty and after that there was no issue.
