Question: I bought a CPO 2013 allroad last year. It's been a minor nightmare, and I have learned the hard way that CPO doesn't mean much.
Anyway, the question: I have been experiencing notchy steering almost since I took delivery of the car, 9k miles ago. It feels like there are indents in the steering, so as you turn it always wants to sit in one of those indents. It makes it impossible to make minute adjustments. Initially, the notchiness was intermittent. Now it is almost all the time. The first couple times I took it in to my local dealership (not the dealership that sold me the car) they would not acknowledge there was a problem. The third time they acknowledged there was a problem and replaced some parts stating there was binding in the steering column. I picked up the car, the steering is a little better, but still notchy, and the steering is now off-center when traveling straight.
I have another appointment next week, but I am not optimistic for a resolution. It is really burdensome to have to keep taking it to the dealership because I live 2 hours away. CPO warranty expires in about 5k miles too.
Just wondering if anyone on here has had a similar issue. I've read a lot about this in various forums, but no clear answers.
Thanks for your time!
