hi guys, I drove an ACURA tl 2005 and TSX 2006.

Was there a reason why I thought the steering was a bit harder on the TSX? May be it's me.

I am contemplating buying either.

One probably has more boost in the power steering than the other (or weight distribution).

Hi, thanks. What I am getting to is - does TSX have the boost or what have you?

Just wanted to make sure that the heavy steering feeling is nothing to do with 'issues' with the car, u know what I am saying..

Pretty much all modern cars should have variable power steering boost that is greater at low speeds and less at higher speeds. So you get more assist during parking. Cars which are meant to be sporty shouldn't have much power assist at higher speeds, generally speaking, which means it will be heavier when turning the wheel.

Ok, so then nothing wrong in the TSX feeling a bit heavy. It felt heavy when I was reversing and not much much driving at 40-50 mph. So it makes sense?
