WHY IS MY 'S STEERING AND BRAKES TIGHT?

2002 Volkswagen Jetta • 56,000 miles

The brakes and steering are very sensitive. It is hard to turn my steering wheel and my brakes are very sensitive compared to other cars I have driven. None of these other cars are jettas. Is this normal?

Without being there, it is hard to say if it is normal. What I recommend is for you to test drive another Jetta to compare it. That way you will know if there is a difference. The steering shouldn't be hard to turn unless it doesn't have power steering.

I do have power steering. My friend drove my car and thinks the fluids are low. I am use to the way the car drives because it has driven the same way since I bought it.

Usually, when it is low it will make a noise.
