Having now been able to put a few miles on the GS since buying it I have a question regarding the handling. As you push on in the A roads the steering feels very light and turn in very sharp.

Is this normal and I will need to use a different technique or is something else amiss.

I have spoken to the dealership about alignment, but they have assured me that it is OK, however I have used a specialist for my previous cars who is fantastic, but always busy, so getting a slot is difficult especially this time of year. Finally the car is on new michelin pilot sports.

Other than this question I am loving having this car:D

Hi, what was your previous car ? The reason i ask is because it's natural you need to get accustomed to the steering characteristics.. i have it moving from porsche to maserati, when i drove the ferrari 430 and i came back in the porsche carrera S i felt really weird, the next day i sold the porsche...

Turn-in is very sharp on these cars, a common minor complaint is that the steering ratio is too quick. But you do get accustomed to it after a while.

A razor sharp turn-in is extremely desirable on a performance car. I guess it is a matter of what you are used to. Compared to my Lotus Europa, the Maserati Coupe has a steering gear ratio that is downright serene.

Previous cars have been Porsches, mainly 993's.

Guess you are right in saying that it takes a little while to acclimatise to the differences. Was just worried that it was an alignment problem.

Here's something I noticed. . .While going slowly. . .tooling around town, the steering is very quick. However, when at speed, it seems to be just about right. Maybe it's because I'm paying more attention to what I'm doing when I'm going faster. Still, the feeling is that the steering is very quick around town.

I've got an '05 coupe cambiocorsa.
