    Unhappy Steering play

    Hi everyone. I've recently purchased an 07 1.8 Vectra Sri and I have just noticed some play in the steering wheel. It's only a few degrees and doesn't seem to affect the steering too badly, but I've never come across this before on any other car I've owned. Any ideas? It's only got 16,000 miles on the clock so I woulsn't expect anything to be worn yet.

    Thanks.

    I've got this on my '52' plate, and found it it was the tie rods, and track rod ends.
    I had a bit of play in the steering wheel, and the sterring warning light would come on when going round roundabouts.

    Just a suggestion but with only 16k I would suspect tyre pressure before anything else?

    Thanks for the suggestions. Had the car for only 2 weeks so taking it back to the dealer to get checked out under warranty. Paid a premium for buying from a dealer so might as well make the most of it.

    Got it back from the dealers. They had to replace a nut and bolt on a unversal joint which seems to have fixed the problem.
