I have an 06 Peugeot Nuevo ES, and ever since new it trys to swerve to the right if you accelerate hard in second gear. Anybody else noticed this?

Our Lancashire drives perfectly, no sign of swerving under any circumstances, I suggest you get it checked out as this would appear to be a chassis or suspension fault.

It might be worth getting the tracking/steering alignment checked Peter

Good advise to get everything checked out.
In a performance car this is known as Torque Steer, it comes about from having one drive shaft longer than the other due to the gearbox mounting.

Thank you folks. After 6 years it is fine in all the other gears, so I think I will just put up with it. Maybe I have a performance Peugeot!!

Most likely you have faulty rubber bushes in the front offside suspension, when you accelarate hard the torque is actually pulling your o/s/f wheel rearwards, pulling it out of "track" and steering to the right. With the vehicle on a level surface,(not jacked up) try rocking the wheel horizontally - front to rear, or get someone to "rock" the vehicle using the engine and gearbox while you watch for any front/rear movement. Not familiar with you suspension assembly but would check for anti-roll bar bushes first.

Good luck... BobK
