Hi Posting this to see if this is a normal handover practise
Picked up 2020 new corsa and steering seemed to be quite light and very vague
I played around with all the available toys and the steering seemed a little more positive when sport mode was selected,trouble is sport mode is Ok on an open rode but a little jumpy around town
I drove for a month trying to adjust to the light steering and then I had a puncture in a front tyre which resulted in a replacement tyre being fitted at Kwik fit
Pulling away from Kwik fit I noticed the car was pulling to one side so decided to check the pressures in all my tyres.
Seems my car should have 31 psi all round for normal 2 up and this was the case with the new tyre that had just been fitted trouble was the other 3 tyres had been set at 40psi
No wonder the car was all over the place, Contacted dealer and asked why the tyres had been handed over with a tyre pressure that should only be used with 4/5 passengers and being fully loaded and only then with the drivers knowledge.
Dealer tried to tell me this was normal practise as all settings are safe
I tried to explain that unless the car was fully loaded then this high pressure will result in poor handling and more importantly poorer braking in certain conditions.
Any thought on this anyone?
