Is there a fix for outbacks' poor steering, ie ... wandering, not returning to center, etc. Dealer says it's nornal, but that doesn't make it right!

Asked by Apr 29, 2016 at 01:43 PM about the 2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2012 Outback. Since new, vehicle has had inherent hard steering. Constantly have to make corrections, due to fact that it won't return to center, plus harder than normal effort is required in normal driving conditions.

sounds like an alignment issue. Have the suspension, tires and power steering checked out by a decent shop.

Did you really say since "NEW"??? Did you take this to the dealership under warranty??
