Hey guys!

Recently made the switch from a Seat Leon to an Audi A5 2017 2.0 190PS FWD. I love the car, but I’m having a sort of feeling that the steering is heavy!

Whenever I get to around 30-40mph, the steering can become heavy, similar to the feeling when on a motorway and it stiffens up. Is this normal?

There’s also a strange noise at full lock so I wondered if this was related?

I purchased from a car supermarket in the UK, so I hope they are able to accommodate any repairs if needed

Any advice is appreciated! Thank you!!

Maybe you have Audi Drive Select option, or perhaps turned on in the options?

Here is a link to a site that breaks down the steps to enable it in the MMI 'green screen'.

I've done that process but have not explored every option, but I don't feel what you are describing. Hopefully there will be someone near to you that could possibly drive your car and tell you if it's normal.

Cheers for the reply! I have it set to comfort mode so I would imagine the steering should be light. I’m going to allow my mechanic friend to give it a try and see what he thinks.

Can't really comment on the later models but when I 1st drove my 2009 B8 taking a fast turning at a large round around.. the steering felt hard compared to a previous BMW.
I later found out it was Audi Servotronic..the steering is very sensitive to speed
