Hello I am new to the forum. Have any of you experienced this?Above 75 miles an hour, the car is difficult to keep in a straight line. I should mention this is a 2017 base model soft top with no modifications. This car has low mileage less than 8000 miles. It is a brand new car that I just purchased hardly used.

Need more info because your description is too vague. You control where the car goes? so do you mean hands off the wheel it strays ? If it leaves a straight line hands off, it could be an alignment issue or even a tire wear or air pressure difference in the front tires. Prev answer mentions alignment I think? so you might benefit from getting an alignment done. I drive a 08 Grand Touring Miata and it handles like a go cart, you flick the wheel and it responds instantly, or some might even say "twitchy," but once you get one with the steering, Luke, it handles like it's on rails.
