Sounds like those options may help. But larger wheels and harder tires will def give you more sensitive feel of the road - a harder feel. But it shouldn't really be vibrating or veering to a side.

Automatic transmission, and there's definitely a compartment for power steering fluid. I asked the same thing. I said the system is closed. However, it isn't uncommon for this fluid to 'evaporate.'

They chalked it up to evaporation. No leak found. They did change four of my old injectors though.

I had something similar, but mine was a clicking after turning. My bushings needed some grease or something to that effect. Covered under warranty.

I must admit, 19 inch wheels don't play well with the potholes in the Northeast. Even with my oversized nonrunflat tires I recently developed a bubble (after 20k miles). Tire & wheel shop had to...

Gotcha, that makes more sense. I read that air can get into the power steering fluid during an alignment if the car isn't on. Not sure if that is what happened. Let's see if I'm empty on Tuesday when...

Armoredsaint, are you saying I should be covered because I opted for the optional steering fluid flush last year?

That's what I thought too mark. I'm wondering if they somehow pulled or ruptured a tube. Or damage to the the rack and pinion or the boot. I think I may opt to out of even mentioning the alignment....

Empty power steering fluid

Got a bubble on my front passenger tire. Ended up replacing all 4 tires at a local shop. Also got my alignment done there too. The next day I get a 'steering response' alert. Checked the power...

I have been hitting massive NYC potholes without a problem for the last 3 years. Just ditch the run flats and get a larger tire size. Mine are 245/45/19. They're great.

Not sure what you mean. However, I love the way it drives, and it fills the wheel well nicely. My father has the 2011 550 and he has replaced 2 tires in under 2,000 miles. I'm over 16,000 miles with...

They ended replacing 4 injectors in bank two. Car runs very smooth. Hopefully I won't need the other 4 injectors changed. ...and if I do, it happens before my warranty expires.
