Ok so I took my car out on the highway this weekend... This is what I noticed. Around 35mph or below the steering wheel is loose almost like no resistance. As I approached 60mph it got tighter and I could feel resistance. Imo it drove great, I could feel the steering more and gave me or felt like I had more control at faster speeds.
I thought it felt natural. Like how a steering wheel should feel. I would not want a loose wheel going 60mph+ and a stiff wheel around town.
If this was Ford's intention on the steering design they get a+ from me.
