    Advise for a problem with my Vauxhall Zafira. 2nd Nov 08 at 9:21 AM
    While we were out yesterday, the steering on my Zafira suddenly 'tightened' and it was very difficult to turn - not sure if it is a problem with the steering wheel or the wheels. We stopped at Tesco (it took me a while to reverse into the parking space as the wheels/steering wheel made it very difficult to turn) and when we re set out home, at first the wheel was back to normal, but within a minute or so, it had stiffened up again.

    Now as someone who knows nothing about cars, im just looking to see if anyone can tell me what they think the problem is, and how much it should cost to put right. Then, when i ring the garage tomorrow, i have some idea as to what to say and what to expect. i always worry as a woman on my own, with a very obvious 'i havnt got a clue about cars' that i could be ripped off (local Vauxhall dealer tried it before, changing my tyres and charging me without even asking - luckily i know a really good local family tyre firm so knew i was being overcharged - the problem my car has at the moment, i wouldnt have a clue!!!)

    Thanks in advance.
