Power Steering 2016 60ah Rex

Good Evening,

I picked up my new i3 this week and have been loving every minute of it.
I seem to be finding the steering a little heavier than I am use to (Nissan Leaf). Today I went for a 20 mile countryside drive and found the steering was actually tiring my arms out, I was only going 20-30mph.

Is there anything I can do to lighten the steering so it requires a little less effort? (Apart for going to the gym) :)

For info, my tyres are 38psi rear and 32psi front.

Thanks in advance

I am sure my i3 has higher recommended tyre pressures than that. Are you sure those figures you quote are correct?
It sounds like it has an issue to me. There is nothing ‘heavy’ about the i3 power steering. See what they say. If they tell you all is well drive another at a dealership and see how it compares.
