    A very very basic question:

    Have you checked the Tyre pressure?

    @OP

    My experience with 2011 XLi

    If you drive the car daily the steering remains soft and very light.

    If you drive it like i do (Just on weekends to relax my self),The steering remains hard for 10 -20 kms

    Then it becomes soft

    Another observation

    After starting up

    If you pull your car above 3500 rpm in first gear

    The steering remains hard through out till you shut the car down and start again.

    After reading the owner manual of the car it was written that EPS gets overheated,turn off the engine for 10 mins and then start it it be normal again.

    Change the battery, while testing be performed over the generator to be within specs.
