New sorento power steering problem
I Just purchased a new Kia sorento lx 4wd 2012. This is my first SUV. As soon as I drove it out of the dealer, it had the steering to the right problem discussed in the post below. I also found the steering wobbles on small bumps at low speeds (under 50kph). I have read all the pages of the post and think this warrants a new post.
I went back to the dealer the next day , Pretty P*s**d off about having spent 36K (I'm in Canada) and going to dealer the next day. test drove with mechanic, he said it's normal that steering wobbles on bumps, said that's electric steering for you... but when he tried to convince me that steering to right is normal I lost it ! long story short he swapped the front wheels and no more steering to right but still have wobble on small bumps. I also have a 08 vw rabbit (best car ever by the way) and a 97 chevy venture van and they both handle the same roads without wobble ! Dealer says it is normal...
Here is the kicker... the other day I was parallel parked on street and pulled out quickly (so full right steer and quick left to stay on lane) and I almost ran into the car across the street .. for about one second it's like my steering froze (or power to steering went out) !!! Anyone know about this ? I feel it is related to wobble... Is this normal ? I need all the info before I call dealer, Any help would be much appreciated
