Hi. So I am planning to buy an automatic tsx and today I test drove a 2008 one from a private seller. The steering was ridiculously harder to steer (needed to use more strength to turn) compared to my 2004 honda cr-v. Just wondering if that is normal or is it just that car? For anyone who has driven both cars and know's how they feel lol.

Thanks!

Haha in that case you don't have to worry about the power steering rack braking lol if it's tight and hard. :)

My g/f's dad drives a 2006 and his steering is quite a bit heavier than on my 2007 - it's German in weight while mine is in between an Accord and a German car. He bought his CPO and I believe that after I mentioned to him the difference between mine and his that he had it looked at and got a clean bill of health.

Not sure why there is a difference - production variance I suppose?

The TSX has a lower steeriing ratio than the CRV. It makes the steering reponse tight and quick. I love it personally, but dont think there is something wrong with the car.
I would say the same. TSX steering is supposed to give you a heavier, tighter steering like all the expensive German cars.

I noticed the huge difference after I drove my dad's van (Nissan) for the summer.
