We just picked up my wife,s new Milan. I love the flat tight handling . But I find that I have to be on the wheel all of the time. If I take my eyes off the road for a split secound to push one of the many Sync buttons the car heads for the yellow or white lines. If I let go of the wheel the car trackd straight and true. I am thinking that the quick steering ratio my problem. Is the ratio adjustable? I would like it to be a little more forgiving.

The newer steering gear boxes are much tighter than the older cars. any little tweak will turn the car a little. if you''re used to the old land yachts like the one I drive (check my signature) then it''ll just take some getting used to. I don''t think the ratio is adjustable, but since you JUST got it, you can certainly take it back to the dealer and ask if they can loosen the steering just a bit. If it''s not doable, they''ll certainly let you know.

Thanks for the come back Sly. You have my number. Land yachts are my favorite. I will have to drive the Milan more often and just get use to it before I start playing with the GPS. I will post the dealer''s reaction to my request. I can not wait to see the look on his face.
