Re: GC 2015 Limited Steering Wheel Issue

I'm in agreement with those who've said that it's all about positioning. Once you find that sweet spot driving is completely effortless. Get comfortable and set the memory. I put 500 miles on mine shortly after I took delivery to get used to it. When I got back I was less fatigued than I ever imagined I may be given the mileage I put on.

The folks who I've known who've had carpal tunnel are usually folks who work on computers or do a repetitive activity involving the hands for large chunks of time. Usually, they recommend making an adjustment to the positioning to help with the symptoms before opting for surgery. There are even mouse pads with a gel pad in there to aid in preventing carpal tunnel or keeping symptoms at bay. I'm not questioning your doc or the prognosis. I'm not a medical professional but if I think about this logically, I'd venture a guess that you may have developed carpal tunnel prior to the GC and the current positioning of the wheel/seat may be further aggravating it.

Re: GC 2015 Limited Steering Wheel Issue

Guys I almost lost this thread because I set to receive e-mail notifications and only got one after the first response.

Thanks all for responding. Let me start out by issuing a big f u to the viagra comments. You know who you helpful people are

jaybo, I think you're mostly right in that i was developing the CT and that the GC's wheel positioning really aggravated it. I drive a lot, about 30K a year and put over 3k in the first month so with bad positioning it definitely could have brought to CT out.

BUT.....
I was scrolling through the dash infos and saw that the tire pressure in all tires on a cold start morning today was 47... Straight from the dealer at 47 in all tires. I adjusted it to 36psi and it's a completely new car now. I still can't parallel park with 1 hand palming the steering wheel (not supposed to be that easy right?) but I don't feel it fighting every little adjustment I make on the highway anymore. <--- This I think really put a lot of strain on the wrists and tendons.

richardyc, what do you mean by steering wheel not centered? What's TSB?

Re: GC 2015 Limited Steering Wheel Issue

I just bought a 2015 limited yesterday and noticed today on the freeway my steering wheels cocked about 3/4" to the right. Really kind of irritated as I just bought it. Not to mention, Service had closed when I took delivery and it turns out the radio wouldn't accept the voice commands. I'm waiting until Tuesday to have the steering wheel centered and I just did a radio update which fixed that problem. Still issues you wouldn't expect upon driving off the lot.

It would be nice if they could at least ensure that all of the software is at the latest release before a new owner drives it off the lot.
