I bought a 911 4s PDK Cabrio laste week. Now, I find that there is a little play in the steering wheel. It can move a little bit to both sides without the car turs either way. The sensation in the steering wheel is also very sensitive to anything on the road meaning that it will pull a little to either side when the wheels pass a little bump on the road. This is more pronounced at higher speeds.

 

If the road is perfect there is no vibration on the steering wheel, but as soon as one of the wheels meets something on the tarmac you feel it very much on the steering wheel.

 

Any advice?

You don't give much background on whether there are other issues with the steering or if you've owned a 911 in the past.

If you are new to 911s then that might explain it. It sounds pretty normal to me. I have a very small amount of play and can feel all the bumps. Porsche is known for its excellent steering that gives lots of feedback.

How this helps.

Absolutely normal Totaldental. When you pick up the pace it all makes sense. But, you have to maintain the car. Make sure the wheels are balanced correctly and round. Bent rims and balance problems are telegraphed by that steering but, a 911 that is maintianed correctly is a beautiful thing. Make sure the tire pressures are right. Once you are use to 911 steering everything else feels numb.

I've had several 911's and non of those have felt like this in the steering wheel. I went to The Porsche dealer yesterday and they torqued all the joints around the steering column which resulted in a completely different and more firm sensation. There is almost no play in the steering wheels now! - I'm very happy!
