Punto Grande Steering Question

Hi Guys
Just got a brand new Grande, but the steering feels a bit odd, like its sticky when going straight, requires a bit of a tug (only slight )to turn. Turning is fine but it needs constant little corrections on the motorway. I am new to this type and new to the electric power steering, is this normal ? or will it ease up? Only up to 200 miles so far, dont want to take it back if this is normal.
Anyone any ideas or comments?
Thanks R4

Re: Punto Grande Steering Question

I'd recommend a visit to the dealer & let them check it out,there have been a few reports of steering problems however its a vauxhall system but dealer will have enough info to rectify the problem for you,i'd suggest a dealer recallibration first on your steering system.

Thats what were here for

Yep,any safety related problem or even question (even if it just cures your worries) take it to dealer & get it checked.
