I too find the steering a bit too responsive on the highway. I love the steering speed around town. But it has very little self centering action. If you set the wheel in a turn and take your hands off there is minimal pull the recenter the wheel. This combined with the fast steering response makes the highway cruise a bit less laid back.kwind wrote:When wind is strong and gusty, combined with the short wheelbase, the high body, narrow tires and sensitive electric power steering, I find it quite a job to keep the i3 going straight. It does not allow one to take eyes off the road ahaed, even for one second. Does anybody experienced this as well?
Since they damp the throttle response in Eco Pro mode perhaps they could also slow down the steering rate at the same time. The steering mechanism is electric so I am sure that is a programmable feature. The geometry of the steering rack is such that as you turn it increases the toe out so that accounts for some of the rapid turning response. That isn't going to change but I am sure they could slow down the response to the wheel by programming.
