Thanks for the response. The car is a VW Vento made in India. The software was updated at the last servicing and I was present when the diagnostics was run. No fault showed up in the system but the feeling of stickiness in the steering remained. Since no warning light is seen the software does not see any problem.
The sticking sensation comes when moving on the road and only when the steering is in the central position and if it is moved from there. Once the steering action has started then there is no sticky sensation. However, when the car is static there is no sticky central position and the steering moves smoothly with the slightest force of a single finger.
As a driver who has driven the same car for many years, you know how it feels when it is driven and I know that the steering sensation has changed even though no fault has been diagnosed by the computer.
Is there any special computer read out that I can ask the VW garage to run to check the power steering in detail.
Thanks once again
