Loose Steering Feel

So I've been noticing that the steering wheel jerks around a lot whle driving under normal conditions. The dealership says they have had similar complaints but offered no real solution. My previous cars were BMW and Lexus and their steering feel was much more rigid and tight.

Not only does the wheel seem to jerk a bit, but it's been nearly impossible to get rid of 100% of the steering shake (only happnes between 60-70mph). The dealership last balanced them 2 weeks ago and showed me the specs. It was nearly perfect. I attribute this to the steering, not the wheel balance at this point

What can be done to tighten the steering feel? Is there a way the dealership can increase the dampening of the steering?

Have you guys noticed the same thing? I welcome your input and suggestions.

Yes that sounds exactly like the wheel vibration issue over 60mph. I'll have to confirm the build date and let the dealership know.

Are the codes part of the VIN#?

Thanks!
