Avalanche 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,500 miles
In the morning - below say about 55 degrees when I first get in and drive, I have to turn the wheels to the left to exit my driveway. For the first minute or two, the steering is very stiff, almost like manual - then it goes normal for the remainder of the day.
