I was starting to think that every car does this. All mine pull to the right..and of course there are no real straight spots to do a good test either. The wind is hell here so that is always a possible cause..and all the roads are tilted for water run off..likes like I will never know for sure..
Mine pulls hard to the right ONLY when I stomp on the brakes. It's at the dealership right now. Your problem could be tire pressure? Make sure that both side are equal. Also, it could be a bad tire (proabably not), look for lumps in your tires. This is a lot easier if you have a friend move the car while you are looking at the tire.

Yeah, I see that a little bit. I thought that it could be tire pressure...but I've been too lazy to check it. It also could be because every time I have a nice flat section of road to test this out on, I'm in the fast lane and the left lane of the highway slants just a bit, doesn't it? I mean so water drains off the road. Not much, but just enough to maybe make a paranoid car owner think something is wrong?
Anyway, here is an even better one. Look at your steering wheel. Mine is not straight. The tilt of a tilt wheel tilts the steering wheel up and down. Well imagine if a steering wheel tilted left to right...well my steering wheel looks slanted that way. Stand outside over the windsheild, look down, and you'll see it. I even measured from the dash to the top of the left side of the steering wheel and from the dash to the top side of the right side of the steering wheel and there was about 1 1/4" difference. Sooooo is the car pulling to the left or am I steering it that way when I put the wheel "straight". I know, this doesn't excuse the case where I have my hands off the wheel. It's something to think about though.
Mine tends to pull to either side when the brakes are applied I chalked it up to the crown of the road. Heres a little test you can do yourself. Drive your car in a straight line through a puddle of water and the check the wet tracks it left behind to see if their straight. I know someone that had a ford van that crabbed down the raod from day one and ford could not or would not fix.
