I've noticed this issue from the beginning but put it off to learning a new car. However, seeing that others are having this same issue I looked a little closer today and I think I may have found something ... the steering wheel is NOT directly in front of the drivers seat and is in fact biased to the right a little bit. So, at low speed in a parking lot if you line up with the steering wheel the front of the car will tend to be pointed a little to the left. That is, the front of the car will be a couple degrees CCW.
