    Is it that your steering feels quite light as they all seem to and is responding to any oddities in the road, if you see what I mean.

    to be honest , I had the vec b sri , and it was like a gokart , would'nt dare take roundabouts , corners at the same pace in the c , It may be suspension , get it checked out buddy , but be sure to get a few opinions.

    If all suspension components are ok ,it might also be worth getting a proper 4-wheel alignment done as it's also possible that it's the rear end causing the problem as was the case on my old facelift Omega which now as I remember had a similar feeling , as it turned out the thrust angle was miles out which needs to be set before any adjustment of the toe is done on the front, as it seems alot of places claiming to do wheel alignment just seem to ignore the thrust angle and what it means and therefore what are they setting the front toe against!! and I have actually asked some of these places this question before now and it's been a case of 'What do you mean Sir' !! that just about says it all!!

    Could well be a geometry issue in that case as that's how my omega felt before it was 4- wheel aligned properly, in fact if I remember I used to thnk to myself 'might as well let go of the steering wheel and let the car do it's own thing, coz it's obviously what it wants to do' !!
