I have a 2013 Buick Verano. for the first say 1/2 hour or 45 minutes of a drive, everything works fine and the steering wheel responds to minute adjustments. After that the steering wheel will somewhat "lock" in a direction and require some increased force to make those minute adjustments and results in oversteering as the wheel lets go. It seems to get worse as the drive progresses but has never gotten to the point where the wheel didn't release. It has made me wonder a couple times while driving at highway speeds if it was going to let go...but in the end it always lets go and a quick readjustment in steering is required to correct the oversteering.
So becuase its under warranty I take it back to a GM dealer and explain that it doesn't present itself until well into a drive. GM dealer proceeds to drive for a small drive look at steering components, etc and then tell me that it doesn't present itself. Unable to replicate concern... They refuse to take the car for a long drive where the issue will present itself. GM won't pay a tech for driving the car that long they say. I say this is BS
A car can have something wrong with it after say an hour of driving but GM won't do anything about it becuase it doesn't present itself in a 15 minute drive? So this is a short drive car only? I appreciate it takes a long time but this isn't just a rattle we are talking about. This could have a serious safety implication. I'm trying to work out some sort of system where I can diagnose it myself with thier tools while driving but more than anything looking for others who might have this issue or better yet know how to fix it.
Thanks for reading and thinking about how I can fix this problem myself.
