STEERING

9/7/2014 - COLUMBUS, OH
THE NEW ELECTRO HYDRAULIC STEERING ON 2013+ ALTIMAS APPEARS TO HAVE A FAULTY SOFTWARE. IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE VEHICLE SPEED SENSITIVE/PROPORTIONAL AT ALL! THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND TIRESOME TO DEAL WITH. NORMALLY, POWER STEERING ESPECIALLY THE ELECTRICALLY ASSISTED STEERING WILL EMPLOY SPEED SENSITIVITY WHICH WILL MAKE IT EASIER TO MOVE THE WHEEL AT LOWER SPEEDS AND HARDER ON HIGHER SPEEDS. THIS IS NECESSARY TO KEEP THE VEHICLE STEADY AND CORRECTED INSTEAD OF WANDERING AND NEEDING TO BE OVERCORRECTED. A CORRECTLY FUNCTIONING ELECTRO STEERING SHOULD THEREFORE MAKE THE STEERING TIGHT AT HIGH SPEEDS > 60 MPH TO KEEP THE CAR CENTERED ON THE ROAD AND GIVE STABILITY TO THE RIDE. ALL ALTIMAS IN THIS GENERATION APPEAR TO EXHIBIT THIS ISSUE INCLUDING THIS CAR GURUS REVIEW - HTTP://WWW.CARGURUS.COM/CARS/2014-NISSAN-ALTIMA-OVERVIEW-C24167. THIS IS A MUST RECALL ITEM.
