    Default Slightly heavy steering

    Can anyone tell me if they notice their power steering seems slightly heavier/ stiffer (not by huge amounts though) after having been stuck in heavy stop/start traffic for a while? all other times steering feels fine, have checked fluid level and all is ok
    Cheers Pete

    Thanks mate appreciate that.
    Beginning to wonder if it's a combination of , temperature of tyres (I.e more grip) and how the steering fluid maybe re-acts with higher temps?
