Arrow   Suzuki grand Vitara 2.0 TD 2004 3door

My father feels his steering is too sensitive
as he is driving along his driving feels very twitchy
I think it drives fine and its a 68 years old bad driving
he dare not take a hand off the steering wheel or relax.

Tyre are standard sizes,
double checked the pressures,

Idea   any idea's ?  Question

can the power steering be adjusted to stiffen the steering ?  Question

Paul

have a quick look underneath to check for any play in the joints, but that would normally cause the car to feel "floaty".

i havent heard of being able to stiffen powersteering, is it progressive pas of constant?

Ive had the same problem on my grand vitara it turned out to be the tyres had been over inflated due to an inacurate tyre gauge I used when abroad
I drove back from Portugal and it wore the middle of the tyres out, you couldnt see it was worn but I changed the tyres and it was like a new car
