Maybe if you're coming from something like a Civic...
More likely, it's a torque steer issue. Upengined FWD cars with decent amounts of torque often run into that problem since manufacturers try to skimp costs by not making the proper modifications needed to compensate for the additional torque.
Driver of a 2009 Subie WRX here. Before that, had a 2002 Nissan Maxima with the absurd levels of torque steer that plagued that generation of VQ35 Nissans.

Assuming that's a hard limit with little money to pour into repairs later on, I'd look into a MY2004 or later Hyundai Elantra. Stick if possible. They're reliable, practical, reasonably entertaining, and an all round decent choice. Plus you should still have a few years of warranty coverage left.
