    zafira 1.6 life 2006 steering problem

    HI,

    I,m new to this forum and have had a zafira for 5 years and changed it this march to a newer one. Have never had any problems with the old one, but have noticed the steering of this car is getting worse. Pulls to the left or right and as you brake the steering wheel moves round halfway on it's own, .

    Have taken back to vauxhall garage, as still under warranty and yhey said that everything was ok with tyre pressure and tracking and I was told that this is how they drive for that year ?????? mmm got me thinking that there might be a fault for my year.

    Has anyone else had problems like this or know what could be causing this. It is driving me mad when driving it and will be taking it back for them to look at again. Think they were trying to fob my wife off as it's her car and she took it in.



    many thanks

    koi

    Sounds like tracking and it does sound like you are being fobbed off, I had the same on mine under the warranty period.

    I took mine in 3 times and the first 2 times they said the tracking was perfect, the third time they said it was miles out and they rectified (this was after I told them that i would take my car to a different garage to get the tracking checked/done, show VX the original measurements and then present them with the bill if the tracking was out)
