Left analog stick drifting

I bought a brand new slim 360 recently and the left analog stick of the controller is drifting. Example, if I walk around in Borderlands and let go of the left analog stick, my character slowly turns to the left until I push the left stick to the right and when I let go, it drifts to the left again. Every game has this problem. I tried new batteries, same problem. I sync'd the controller to another 360 at my friends house (old elite model), same drifting problem. The controller is bad. A search on Google shows lots of other people complaining of the exact same problem.

Since I'm within 90 days, think MS will replace my controller for free?

Anyone else seen this problem? No idea why Google has tons of hits for my problem and I can't find a single post on this board about it?!

Microsoft will replace it as you still have your warranty. However it will be quicker for you if you get it replaced by the retailer.
