Hi guys, weird problem started out of the blue today, while driving my car it started pulling hard right all of the sudden . Feels like I'm fighting the wheel to keep the car straight... Adaptive steering is off, lane departure is off.. Can't figure it out ...

All tires have 35-36 psi in them.. It's being taken to the dealership Thursday.

What are your thoughts?

Q50 S AWD. 1700 miles

How, exactly, did you turn off DAS? This is not a feature you can turn off.

You can turn off automatic lane control, but not DAS.

Did you try the fix that I posted the other day in another thread? (look it up for exact sequence, but requires long straight road. Turn wheel Left 90 degrees, Right 90, left 90, right 90, then accelerate to 35-40 holding wheel straight)

Or if dealer is nearby, just take to them.

I have had this same issue 5 times. Dealer finds no problems, even suggested it might be the road I drive on. Happens only in the morning and lasts about 2 miles. Mine pulls left, not right, I reported this to the NTSB as a dangerous defect. You may want to add another complaint -- may force Infiniti to do a recall. My wife is afraid to drive car due to this issue

Just spoke with dealership .. They didn't find anything wrong , they drove car for 2 days and of course the car didn't have the problem when they had it.No codes showed up.. They double Checked with infiniti tech support . They told me that it could happen when the battery is low

The car is brand new and only had 1700 miles on it, I don't get it , well see how it goes .. I'm pretty unsettled about this issue

Safecar.gov Complaint ID for "Car pulls to left/right side of read"

ID # is 10544667

Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

The more people add their issue about this, the faster Infiniti will take it serious. I am sure this will cause someone to have a serious accident and then, ala Toyota, here come the lawsuits. I document and send the dealer the time and date of each incidence; 5 so far.

HI guys, I just bought Q50S hybrid sport 3 days ago. This is my first post. I was all excited until last night when I experienced this issue. I was driving on highway at about 80mph when the car started pulling right. I had to fight the steering to keep the car straight, this resolved in 2 mins. This seems pretty dangerous. Otherwise I love the car and wanted to post positive things. Should I take it to the dealer, call infiniti or just wait for it to happen again? thanks

I guess you mean that this is your first post since getting the car. Having read your previous posts in the lease deal thread, maybe this is karma.

My car has started pulling left and the steering wheel is somewhat off center. I have added this to my list of issues. It was previously spot on center. It isn't hard but more of a drift. One time it was a much stronger pull, like it wanted to change lanes.

The more I read about all these issues with steering and InTouch, the less determined I feel to join the Infiniti Q50 owners circle. I still have 3 months, though .. Maybe this will all settle down by then..

Why do you say its Karma? Should I be penalized for doing my homework in an attempt to get the best deal possible?
O.K., I won't get into a back-and-forth with you. I'll just end it with this: Just because something is "legal," doesn't mean it's ethical. There is a widening gap between the younger and older generations in the understanding of that, and in reading your other posts, I'm guessing that you are definitely in the former(by what you said and how you said it). I know that nothing else I say will make any difference in the way you think or the way you write, so I will say no more on the subject.
