At 60+ mph, the power steering feels unstable. This may be a failure in the variable assist system although dealer was confused if tahow still had this system. It may be front suspension instability. Vehicle handles very well at lower speeds but over 60, it wanders and the steering feels like it will overcompensate or oversteer. Unknown if the Tahoe still has a variable power assist steering. I would like to speak to a Chevrolet representative that can provide this information and assistance.
