Is there anyway to make the steering wheel less stiff on this model car or is it just the way it is.
Do you

This may be far fetched but the tire pressure may be low, Many Chrysler Crossfire models are equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that tracks the air pressure in the tires and displays a warning when one of the tires is low. Once you increase the pressure in the tire to the correct level, or you rotate or replace the tires, the system needs to be recalibrated so it can accurately monitor the tire pressure. The system recalibrates itself automatically under the right driving circumstances.

A while back I resd somewhere that some models of the crossfire automaticly adjust to the driving style of the operator when new or reset. If someone had previously put the vehicles handling to the test with some aggressive driving on a winding mountain road or on a track the suspension will be configuredfor that type of driving and this may be the reason for the hard steering, especially at low speeds. I cant find the site where I read this about the crossfire, but i'll look again and get back to you if I find anything. The reset was jest a few simple steps but I cant remember exactly what the steps are, something like "insert key in ignition, fully depress accelerator and hold then turn the ignition to on". I cant recall what comes after that. Would be nice if the fix is that simple

Guess I should have looked at the date. I just replied to a 2 1/2 year old question
