I've read that cars are designed with a little pull to compensate for the road slant, etc. I've noticed in my Evoque that when I am on a (presumably) flat road and traveling exactly straight that my steering wheel is tilted ever so slightly to the left of center. Very very slightly. When I center the wheel my car drifts ever so slightly to the right.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I don't think any car is designed to correct for crown. Reason being, some roads are flat, and some, especially divided highways, are crowned in instead of out. You can, however, give your car an alignment to correct one way or the other if you like. More important than where your steering wheel is pointed is where your car is headed when you're on a flat road and not touching the wheel. If it goes straight but the wheel is tilted, your alignment is fine, you just need your steering wheel straightened. Unfortunately that requires a tie rod adjustment, which is basically an alignment.
I have that problem on mine.. and I though it was just not align right. my wife thought I was crazy.
