I got my P85+ on 6/28 and have about 950 miles on it. I noticed that if I hold the steering so that I think the T is perfectly straight, the car veers to the left. If I let the wheel find its preferred position, the T appears slightly misaligned clockwise, about a couple of degrees to me, and the car runs straight. This has kind of bugged me, and fortunately Tesla service in Norristown, PA is only 10 miles away. I took it there 2 weeks into ownership, and their excellent manager agreed on a test drive that it should be looked into. Unfortunately they don’t have an alignment rack yet – so I agreed to wait till Sept. Last week I happened to call the 24hr support number for an unrelated matter, and I mentioned it to the agent. He suggested that Tesla could trailer my car to either Rockville MD or Queens NY for analysis. – so I would not have to wait for the alignment rack locally. I was highly impressed!! So I dropped my car off yesterday and now have a loaner. To my surprise – the loaner (P85) behaves exactly the same way!! I then began to think maybe my problem is that I am looking at the horizontal outline of the dash-console, which is probably meant to be slightly curved/bowed, and I’m deliberately trying to align the top to the T to that curve due to the illusion of what appears horizontal. What do you fellow Tesla lovers think?
