This car is really getting on my last nerves. I want to be able to love it - I see the potential, but every time I drive I end up grinding my teeth when it decides to not drive straight. This electronic steering is such bullshit. So many things can go wrong if not programmed or installed correctly.

I don't notice any difference in ride height...but like I said earlier, it does pull to the right and the steering wheel pulls when accelerating from a stop or braking quickly. It did not do either of these things before I had my steering rack replaced.

Also with the new steering rack, the steering is VERY loose. The slightest imperfections in the road cause the car to drive in a different direction if I am not holding the wheel tightly. The steering was much stiffer (which I preferred) before the new steering rack.

I don't know what to do at this point.
