Since you are new to this platform having just purchase your base model, the truck reference is confusing. Steering is tight?
What did you have before you bought the Kappa, when comparing the steering feel, or lack there of?
Mileage count on the odo currently? Our cars ride can be stiff to some owners when they are not use to our set up.
Changing out the old p/s fluid is a no brainer here with any used car purchase. You just never know what has been done to the car
by the previous owner or dealer maintenance. New fluid, belt tight, no noise issues lends to maybe something else here that you
are experiencing here. Old tires? Age? Make? Air pressures? This can make a world of difference to the feel or the ride, and steering input by the owner. Old shocks is another that might make it feel this way.
Not part of the steering assembly per say, but new beats old any day.
Suspension bushings is another over looked item as our cars age. Steering linkage, no binding ( noise ) issues,
no damage to rack itself is a good thing. The repairs can be expensive in some cases. Your results will vary.
Any way Welcome to club. More info, with photos of your car will help our owners help you, when asking these first few questions
that you do have about the Kappa platform.
