AU3 Power-steering shudder
I've noticed a fairly significant problem with my AU3 which I bought recently and has < 20,000km on the clock.
When in low-speed situations, eg. parking the car, the power steering performs very badly. At most points during the turn the steering is fine, but it reaches points where it starts to shudder and feels very heavy like power assistance is being lost. It doesn't groan like you would expect with most power steering problems though.
Is this a known problem? I'm going to take it in under warranty after xmas.
