My mom's '07 Cobalt LTZ is the vehicle in question. My girlfriend and I took it up north to Traverse City over New Year's (Forester is awaiting a clutch job).
I know this "first generation" GM electric power steering sucked in comparison to the systems they have now but it's like at speeds other than parking maneuvering speeds the wheel wants to rip itself out of your hands. Why's it feel so "heavy"? My arms became tired just from driving a couple hours on US-131.
My Forester with its "numb" hydraulic power steering (as some reviews have called it) feels much better. Personally I'd rather feel as little as possible (as in my '74 LeSabre).
This is more of a rant than anything else...but any comments?
