i had always noticed this ever since i first got my 97 LX sport, the wheel was really hard to turn, well not hard, just stiffer ( a lot stiffer than my 93). what gave me this idea to write this was when my dad drove the car the other day and he told me that he loves my car, but wasnt sure about the stiff wheel. i personaly like the wheel, especially on the freeway, but sometimes i do think its pretty stiff. one thing i noticed though was when i let my car warm up for like 15-20 minutes before i drove it and the wheel seems to be much easier to turn then, it happens all the time. when the car its cold, its always harder. now is this a problem, or do all you guys have the same wheel feel. thanks. any comments???
