I went in for my first oil change and mentioned this problem to the tech. We went for a drive and were able to duplicate the issue - I told the tech to keep the steering wheel straight on the highway - and when she did we observed the car drifting from left to right - without moving to the steering wheel.

In addition to the oil change they gave me an alignment which seems to have helped slightly - haven't had the chance to drive a good amount of miles to really see if it made a difference. Either way will wait for more people to get the ball rolling on this to see if there actually is a deeper problem.
