Hi Folks,My first post here and sadly it's for a grumble.. I picked up my B-Max a few days ago, a second hand Ecoboost 125 Titanium from 2013.

I've been really happy with it, but last night I did a turn that required full lock and at that pointI felt the steering wheel vibrate slightly as if there was a motorpulling at it.
This happened at full lock in both directions, but strangely it was only evident when the car was moving - when stationary it felt smooth at the extremes.

I'm probably thinking the worst, but I have a small window of time to report problems and potentially have them fixed. I'm just worried it's a sign of steering rack/pump problems that will come back to bite me a few months from now.. Thanks for any thoughts.

Ive had full lock judder on a couple of cars, but since you have a warranty, i would get them to check it out.

If it then fails, you have evidence that the fault occured within the warranty period.

Welcome Tafkap, there is no pump on the B-Max steering it is all electric, I suggest you just back the steering wheel off slightly when it is on full lock.

Me to, but still worth having it checked under warranty and obtain proof that they did not diagnose an issue in case it does progress.
