Buick Enclave: Steering

Hydraulic Power Steering

Your vehicle has hydraulic power steering. It may require maintenance. See Power Steering Fluid .

If power steering assist is lost due to a system malfunction, the vehicle can be steered, but may require increased effort.

Variable Effort Steering

Some vehicles have a steering system that varies the amount of effort required to steer the vehicle in relation to the speed of the vehicle.

The amount of steering effort required is less at slower speeds to make the vehicle more maneuverable and easier to park.

At faster speeds, the steering effort increases to provide a sport-like feel to the steering. This provides maximum control and stability.

If the vehicle seems harder to steer than normal when parking or driving slowly, there may be a problem with the system. You will still have power steering, but steering will be stiffer than normal at slow speeds.

See your dealer for service.

Curve Tips

► Take curves at a reasonable speed.

► Reduce speed before entering a curve.

► Maintain a reasonable steady speed through the curve.

► Wait until the vehicle is out of the curve before accelerating gently into the straightaway.

Steering in Emergencies

► There are some situations when steering around a problem may be more effective than braking.

► Holding both sides of the steering wheel allows you to turn 180 degrees without removing a hand.

► Antilock Brake System (ABS) allows steering while braking.

 When It Is Time for New Tires

Factors such as maintenance, temperatures, driving speeds, vehicle loading, and road conditions affect the wear rate of the tires. Treadwear indicators are one way to tell when it is time for new tires. Treadwear indicators appear when the tires have only 1.6mm (1/16 in) or less of tread rem
