Steering column
« on: December 07, 2013, 04:46:08 PM »
Is it normal for the steering column to be at an angle? It is not 90 digs with the dash like normal. The right side of steering wheel is much closer to me than the left side.

Yes. I noticed this from the back of my wagon while the rear door was open, and it concerned me the same way. I then found out that the placement was correct. You don't have an issue!

Actually, if the column was straight the wheel would be over to one side instead of in front of you, that would be irritating,lol..
