Sometimes the steering feels very unpredictable. The resistance on the steering wheel and the effect it has on steering the car seems to change randomly. As far as I know the steering is controlled by the computer and is supposed to be speed related correct? It seems like there is some sort of computer glitch now and I can be just cruising along and all of a sudden the steering is very soft and the wheels turn a lot, or sometimes I can be accelerating from slow speed and the wheel is very hard to turn. Anyone ever hear of this or have a similar issue?

btw it's going in to the dealer on Thursday. But I like to have a little backup info from other people. Last time I brought my car there complaining about a noise from the rear, they worked on the front of the car (needless to say the problem was really in the rear ) I hate bringing my car to the damn dealer.

I think I may have the same issue as you but with some vibrations. I started a thread in here too but havent figured it out.

Its getting checked on Tuesday but everytime the steering wheel is turned off center I get a vibration through the steering wheel, pedals, and seat...basically the whole car. The vibrations are intermittent and wierd. The vibes feel very similiar to a cell phone. short fast pulses.

Im dreading the dealer too as they tried to tell me my exhaust made my headlights not level last visit
