Question Squeaky Breaks and a Other Issues?

I have less than 700 miles on my new 2SS. Sometimes when I come to a stop I hear the breaks squeak. Also when I'm on the highway and let go of the steering wheel for a few seconds the car will start noticably drifting to the left. Have searched threads and can't seem to find anything.

Is this normal for new cars?
Do the breaks have a break in period?
Have you heard of anyone else having these problems?

Thanks for your help!

Drift, I would check your tire pressure and if not take it in to the dealer for an alignment, warranty no charge for sure.

I get the squeek as well at random times. Its never consistent I have 3500 miles and still get some, i cant tell if its when its cold or hot its just really random

I'm taking it to my dealer tomorrow to check out a few things including this. The lady I talked to said that the alignment may be a little off for the first 1000 miles because of the way it is secured on the truck. I’m having them look at:

Rattling noise by the glove box area
Squeaky breaks
Slight drift
First oil change

What lane are you driving in? Most roads are not completley flat... they have sort of a "hump" in them so that water will drain off to the sides. So if you are in the left lane, most cars will veer to the left (at least very slightly). Try driving in other lanes and other roads to see if it still happens.

Good point. I didn't think of that. Thanks!

Dash Issues

Took mine to the dealer to have some issues checked out. They said to bring it back at 3000 miles if these issues still exist.

Squeaky Breaks: Dealer took them apart and inspected them. Nothing unusual was found. They said moisture can sometimes make breaks squeak but it shouldn't happen than often. Infrequent squeaking still happens daily.

Dash Rattling: Said that they tightened up the locking mechanism in the glove box. I still hear the rattling and it seems to be coming from behind the dash on the passanger side and not the golve box.

Door Gap: I know this has been covered and seen on Hendrick's #1. I just noticed it the other day...here is pics:

First pic is the driver's side where I see a gap that is larger than the one on the passengers side (second pic). Doors are completley closed! Not sure what to do other than keep bringing these issues up to my dealer. I paid enough for this car to be this picky.
