    XTS VSport pulling to the right on heavy acceleration.

    I have owned a 2014 XTS VSport since new and it has only 35,500 miles. I noticed today that, on sudden, heavy acceleration, the car almost jumped into the right lane. Yes, I always appreciate the sudden burst of speed, but... not the pulling to the right. Has anyone experienced this issue? Thanks, y'all.

    Check tire pressure on all tires if AWD. .that happens often with my shelby.also,if it was very cold out
    Theres more oxygen,so you'll pick up,maybe 40 hp.,and tire was low it'll pull a lot.it could be one of many mechanical issues but try easy ones first.

    it is called torque steer, inherent with front wheel drive cars with lots of horsepower

    Vsports are all wheel drive, and I think the OP has driven the car for 4 years and 35k miles and the pull just started lately.
    My FWD XTS was very good, perhaps the best, at controlling torque steer. The Hyper strut set up does a great job.
    OP, check your tires, PSI, tread depth and general wear of the tread inboard to outboard. Have the alignment checked and suspension components checked. Maybe a broken sway bar link is broken?

    mine pulls when accelerating, not hard but you need to keep both hands on the wheel
