Figured it out there was an issue with the positioning of my margins, width and height. There is the java code for anyone who needs the help.

(function() {
	var margin = {top: 20, right: 30, bottom: 30, left: 40},
    width = 700 - margin.left - margin.right,
    height = 600 - margin.top - margin.bottom;

var x = d3.scale.ordinal().rangePoints([0, width], 1),
    y = {};

var axis = d3.svg.axis().orient("left");

var line = d3.svg.line() //define a function to convert points into a polyline
    .x(function(d) { return d.x; })
    .y(function(d) { return d.y; })
    .interpolate("linear");//line style. you can try "cardinal".

var chart = d3.select(".chart")
    .attr("width", width + margin.left + margin.right)
    .attr("height", height + margin.top + margin.bottom)
    .append("g")
    .attr("transform", "translate(" + margin.left + "," + margin.top + ")");

var cars=[];

d3.csv("cars.csv", type, function(error, data) {
    cars = data;
    drawPC();
});

function drawPC() {
    
    // Extract the list of dimensions and create a scale for each.
    for (var dim in cars[0]) {
	   if (dim != "name") {
		  y[dim] = d3.scale.linear()
			 .domain([d3.min(cars, function(d) { return +d[dim]; }), d3.max(cars, function(d) { return +d[dim]; })])
		      .range([height,0]);
	   }
    }
    
    x.domain(dimensions = d3.keys(cars[0]).filter(function(d) { return d != "name";}));

    //draw polylines
    for (var i=1; i< cars.length; i++) { //for each car

	   //prepare the coordinates for a polyline
	   var lineData = []; //initialize an array for coordinates of a polyline
	   for (var prop in cars[0]) { //get each dimension
	       if (prop != "name" ) { //skip the name dimension
	           var point = {}; //initialize a coordinate object
	           var val = cars[i][prop]; //obtain the value of a car in a dimension
		      point['x'] = x(prop); //x value: mapping the dimension  
	           point['y'] = y[prop](val);//y value: mapping the value in that dimension
	           lineData.push(point); //add the object into the array 
	       }
	   }

	   //draw a polyline based on the coordindates 
        chart.append("g")
	       .attr("class", "polyline")
	       .append("path") // a path shape
		  .attr("d", line(lineData)); //line() is a function to turn coordinates into SVG commands
    }

    //next: draw individual dimension lines
    //position dimension lines appropriately
    var g = chart.selectAll(".dimension")
	   .data(dimensions)
	   .enter().append("g")
	   .attr("class", "dimension")
	   .attr("transform", function(d) { return "translate(" + x(d) + ")"; }); //translate each axis
    
    // Add an axis and title.
    g.append("g")
