Default 2015 Acadia pulls left, yet wheels aligned

Hi,

First post. I recently purchased a 2015 Acadia SLT with towing package.

My problem:

If I'm on a road with a slight left angle to it, such as the left lane of a freeway, the vehicle pulls to the left noticeably and take a good amount of effort to keep it straight.

If the road has a slight right angle to it, such as the left lane of a freeway, there is barely any noticeable pull to the right, or it is much easier to correct for. I'm not yet sure which, or if both.

On a flat road everything seems just fine.

I understand physics and that a little pull to the left or right when on an angled road like that is normal, but the difference between the two sides is what has me alarmed.

The steering effort difference between correcting for right/left seems greater and higher speeds. Barely noticeable with city driving.

I mentioned this to the dealership. They said they did notice a slight pull to the right on a flat road they test on and they offered to realign the wheels, but that didn't seem to make a difference.

My questions:

What could this be? Variable effort steering issue? Something out of whack that only manifests itself with sideways pressure? Am I imagining it?

I'm looking for some ideas to take with me to the GMC Certified service center.

I have the 1-yr 12k Certified GMC warranty, so I'm hoping something like this is covered as I learned at the dealership that wheel alignment is not.

FYI, the dealership I bought this at is 1 hour away which is why I'm looking to do a little research before trying to get this looked at again.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer!

Oops, I screwed up on this part.
