I just re-acquired a GTV6 in May after years of not owning one so I had forgotten exactly how the steering normally feels on these cars. I'm trying to determine if the steering should feel the way it does or whether I should have it checked out. When cornering hard and after the car sets into a turn, the steering wheel seems to stay in place as opposed to offering a natural tendency to unwind back to the center. Is this normal? The steering will try to return to center as I begin to manually unwind the wheel when exiting the corner. I'm running the standard wheels with standard size tires (Bridgestone ultra high performance all-season category per Tire Rack's designation). I've had it in the shop for other things and had a safety inspection prior to noticing this. They did not point out any steering issues other than replacing a cracked steering boot on the right front.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be the steering rack which I had rebuilt. Steering is MUCH better now!

Also, do you still have the steering damper on the rack? That could be hanging up too.

Thanks. I'll take it in to the shop to have this symptom looked at in more depth.
