2000 Mustang Steering

Hi everyone, my name is Phil from Toronto Canada.
My son just purchased a 2000 Mustang V6 in great shape, fully certified.
I took it for a drive today, and I noticed that the steering wheel requires some effort to turn. Almost like standard steering.
Is it power steering on this model? It's very good in that there's no play in the wheel, just that to me, it seems "weighted" compared to regular power steering.
Is this normal for this car?
Thanks
Phil

It has power steering there is not alot of play. It should not be hard to turn check your power steering fluid first.

Yeah I would check the fluid, 2000 definitely has powers steering. The steering on these cars are extremely tight. A slight roll on the wheel will have the car respond immediately.

Re: 2000 Mustang Steering

Thanks for the reply's.
I've had a car in the past where there were definate issues with the power steering, and it's not like that. I guess the second reply saying the Mustangs steering is "tight" sums it up. It just feels very "direct" and precise, something we are not used to, but not stiff enough to really have to use a lot of muscle to turn. I guess it's all good!
Thanks again
Phil

Yea, the steering effort on a mustang is usually very noticable compared to other vehicles.
