Default baja pulling right....

I picked up my baja a couple weeks ago and noticed from the start that it drifts to the right when driving down all types of roads. Haven't hit any potholes either.
What's the deal? Is this normal because of all wheel drive or is there something wrong? Took it to dealer and they made sure alignment was in. What next?

Could be the slant of the road. Do you notice it all the time. My truck has somewhat wide tires and I notice this a lot, which ever way the road slants.

Mine does it as well. The steering wheel center was also off. Took it to the dealer and they fixed the wheel. They said they did an alignment and it was different but it still pulls alittle to the right. I've got 10K on mine now and don't notice any excess wear on the tires.

Wink Always does that during GOP Admins!

It'll start driving neutral again after November 7, and by January 20 and a Kerry Administration, it'll be pulling to the left.

go figger! ; O )

Is it a drift or a pull,a lot of people get them mixed up.Does it go to the right as soon as you let go of the wheel,or does it go to the right slowly.You might try swapping/crossing the front tires,if it pulls to the left then its in the tires.We done this at the dealer,if you aligned a car with a pull and it still pulls after the alignment then crossing the tires was next.9 out of 10 this would take care of the problem.With the crown of the road and the tires now pulling to the left you won't notice it that much.But it will come back when you drive in the left lane with the road slanting to the left.I had a set of tires one time that would pull one way then when you rotated the tires it would pull in the opposite direction it was strange.Sorry for the rammbling.

Yes, I've noticed the steering wheel is off center. The car pulls slowly to the right driving on flat or slanted surfaces. I will have the dealer rotate the tires and straighten the wheel this time around and see what happens.
Thanks all for the input.
