I don't know exactly. I was at a Honda press event with the blue car in the previous article talking to one of their technical people (I have a suspicion he was very senior) and I mentioned the steering problem. He smiled, and said that I must have sensitive hands, because hardly any customers had mentioned it. He said something like "it's caused by the wrong spec grease in the rack, but we have fixed that now". To be certain, the fault I was feeling was normal steering into a corner, but as you came out of the bend and the steering returned to straight ahead, the steering wheel would stick just before straight ahead and it needed a helping hand to get through this sticky bit.
I am seeing someone today who may be able to shed more light on this, so will report back tonight.
