Hi,

I have just purchased an 08 CZC2 and after driving it for a week thought the steering was a bit heavy. I got my dad to drive it to check and he agreed so I booked it into the local garage to have a look. They have just told me there is a problem with the steering and it could be the 'motor' on the way out (obviously they arent a Mitsubishi specialist).

From looking on here I can see the steering is electric but could any one with greater knowledge please advise on what could be causing the 'stiff' steering and what needs to be done to rectify this. I would like a bit of knowledge to make my next step with the garage I bought it from who quite frankly with hindsight are likely to wash their hands of it all.

Many thanks

Vez

From what I've read on reviews to do with CZ's, they have relatively heavy steering. My CZT is definitely heavier than any other car I've driven, but once you get use to it (that and the lack of feedback) it's fine.

Obviously I'm only going on my own experience and that of car reviewers, and I'm not saying you don't have a possible issue, but on the other hand you might not actually have a problem.

Mirrors my own experience. My immediate thought was that it feels like an American car. No feedback and a bit vague in the middle. Definitely different feel to Eurpean cars.
