Okay I just drove home from work and realized something. The car pulls to the right A LOT when accelerating from a stop a bit quicker than normal. I can easily duplicate this.

This is not the same problem as the steering wheel jerking left or right when braking quickly. It only sometimes jerks when accelerating. If I hold the wheel tight where it does not move when accelerating quickly from a stop the car almost immediately starts to drive to the right even with the steering wheel held straight.

When maintaining a speed it very slowly starts to pull to the right, sometimes not at all.

Those who are experiencing this can maybe test this out and report back.

note: at work I drive ALL previous gen focuses and none of them drive as shitty as the 2012 in terms of tracking straight....and these are company cars that get ABUSED.
