On a test drive of a 2016 Chevy Cruze, the steering wheel seemed to be ... 'twitching'. Just little jumps. We were going ~40 mph on a straight, smooth, road. There was no pulling, or any other discernible problem. When I later drove the same route in my own car, there was not disturbance.

Assuming I didn't just imagine this, what might be the cause? The Cruze has some form of Electrical Power Steering. (EPS)

  • The steering system may have suffered damaged and/or the torque sensor is faulty. Calibration may correct this or advanced diagnosis is needed to determine where fault lies. Electric power steering use brushed motors that wear out after a long life. Electronics can fail or become intermittent at any time.
