I think that's just how the car handles, so does my 2001 Cougar. You get used to it and when you are driving fast...you can appreciate the steering.

The steering is typically heavy on the New Edge Cougars. It is part of the sporty character of the car.


If your car tends to ''lurch'' to one side when you accelerate, that is torque steer. Typically doesn''t happen to anydegree of concernwith the Cougar/Contour/Mystique.
