If the wheel alignment is correct the car should steer straight ahead when you take your hands off the wheel, unless the road camber is quite pronounced and then it might steer slightly to the left. If your car markedly steers left when you let the wheel go there is something wrong. Has your car been in a crash? If so, it may have been incorrectly repaired and not straight. It amazes me how many cars you see on the road that are not visually straight, that is, they are crabbing down the road. I recently saw a Laser so far from straight the driver needed a quarter turn of lock to hold a straight line -- he wasn't so much steering it as sailing it. I'd get someone to drive the EB while you observe from a following car and see if the rear wheels are in line and tracking in line with the front ones.
