I have drove the IS300 and found that when you make a turn, the steering wheel doesn't come back as quick as my other car do (RX, ES, GS)....anyone knows why? Is this the character of the car or something is wrong?

thanks

I've been driving my IS for the past 7 months. Just drove 98 Altima. Driving it felt so weird. Felt like the steering wheel was pushing to go back too hard (among a whole bunch of other things). I guess, you just have to get used to the IS. I absolutely love it. Feels natural.

IS's steering is extremely good. From what I read, second to BMW. In my opinion, it is better.
