New on here. My other half has bought an 05 plate street ka, very cute. I thought I would take it for a spin yesterday,just for research purposes you understand !
Anyway the steering feels a little loose compared to my megane. There is a couple of inches of play from the centre, and I felt like I was constantly correcting the car when I was on a bypass ( straight. 5 miles )
Is this a street ka thing, or is the a problem. Track rod ends, steering rack etc..?

sounds like lower suspension (wishbones) have gone

It does sound like a suspension issue but if the tracking is out out it will give you the same sensation. They are really prone to potholes knocking them off track, so have a look at the tyre wear.
We had a new clutch in our SportKA and found it steered the same as yours when we got it back. Doing 60 was a nightmare. Got the front wheels tracked and its great now.

Hmm, I hope its just the tracking. Its going in for oil, filter plugs etc.. So i'll get them to have a look when its on the ramp.
