Alfa Romeo 159sw

Wave Alfa 159 2.4JTDm steering lightness

Hello folks,
since I bought my lovely Alfa almost a year ago, her steering always been heavier comparing to all the cars I had before. I had power steering linquid's reservoir and liquid changed because of cranking steering noises. Noises are gone, steering is still heavy. All this time I made myself believe it's suppose to be this way and today I decided at last to ask you gentlemens if this is right or I have a fault somewhere.

Mine is very heavy, compared to 156. But it doesn't jump around when driving trough potholes in 159.

Mine is heavy compared to my 156, but the 156 was really light and chuckable. What I found helped to make the 159 feel lighter was to have Powerflexed upper arms fitted along with the adjusters. Not sure if this would be what you're after and it's a lot of money gone if it doesn't help you. I went from 2 hands on the wheel to 1 handed for quick manoeuvres, took me a while to realise it, but when it clicked, I thought-nice.

Its the heaviest car with PAS I've ever driven, if you get one with a matching heavy clutch its a right drag.

A touch heavy but good communication with the road which is all important at speed .
