Like I said..maybe not 160hp..but a lot of cars in this segment...Toyota Corollas, Nissan Altimas (older gens), Kia Forte's and Honda Civics.

My family owns a Corolla and Forte which I have driven numerous times.

I am starting to think the real issue is after getting the new steering rack, the steering is much more loose. Is this how it is supposed to be? Before with my old rack the steering was VERY tight/heavy. It took a lot to get the car to move left or right, opposed to now where the car is easily moved by imperfections in the road. A lot of people don't like heavy steering like that..but I do.
