After some break in miles has anyones steering loosened up some? My steering used to be real tight, "no play in the steering" when driving. I now have a "dead zone" about an inch
play left or right while driving straight down the road. Really noticed it after my car went to the shop via a flat bed strapped down. Any inputs? Thanks:cool:

Sounds like something may have been popped when it was towed - it wasn't being towed because you had driven over a parking barricade or something?

I would have it checked - these racks should not have that much play.

No, wasn't towed for hitting anything.
Fuel pump problem. Definetly not as tight
as before. No pull, drives straight, but lots of play
just feels wrong. Thanks for the input:cool:

Have the dealer check it out. It shouldn't have that much play. If you really have a steering dead zone - try to find out where the compliance is: steering wheel to shaft, shaft intermediate joints, or steering gear. Once you find the compliance, you can replace the suspect part. Only other thought is an alignment issue - could cause it to wander or dart.
