Power steering feels light and disconnected now?
I bought my 2011 2.5 hatchback used a few years ago. One of the driving characteristics that liked when I bought it was that the steering felt somewhat heavy and gave great feedback.
Well, fast forward a year and I had a minor accident. One of the first things I noticed when I got my car back from the shop was that the steering felt noticeably lighter than before the accident. Now the steering has sort of a disconnected feeling and seems over-boosted and darty when I hit certain sections of high speed turns and elevation changes on the interstate. It's not a very comforting feeling and I usually slow down whereas I didn't have to do that before.
Do you guys have any idea what could be going on? Could it be an alignment issue or maybe something else?
