      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. I used to have a Citroen C1, which had much smaller tyres and the steering felt really light, not saying the Ford steering isn't light but just not as light as I'm used to. Are you sure this is not a problem? The pulling is quite forceful if I am not holding the steering wheel correctly, and even then if I am I can feel it wanting to pull. Is this common with a slightly sportier car and thicker tyres?
  2. Hi, My 2009 Zetec S seems to have the issue of the steering following or tracking to natural curves in the road, bumps and rough road surfaces. When the car passes over rough or angled road surfaces and I am not gripping the wheel tightly the steering wheel will pull to one side or the other. On smooth and flat roads however this is not an issue, the steering wheel is straight and doesn't pull, the same goes for motorway speeds. Is this natural for thicker tyres? I am more used to cars with thinner tyres and lighter steering. The model also has 17 inch alloys. Is this just due to wheel alignment or something else?
