I just bought a '13 XC70 for my wife. She really loves the car. She has but one complaint, the steering effort. She says it's too hard to turn the wheel driving around town. I have a Mustang with settings for steering effort but as far as I can tell my model of the XC70 doesn't have the ability to adjust the feel. The literature seems to indicate that steering effort is speed related. I have driven the car and the steering effort does seem more than most cars we have owned in the past; Lexus, Infinity, etc. Is it possible that the speed sensitive steering might be stuck in high feel? I will take it in to the dealer but I suppose steering effort is very subjective.
