Default XC60 Steering Lock

Just one thing I think is worth pointing out about the new XC60 - the steering lock is incredible for a big car with drive to the front wheels. Turns tighter than my Focus - which I must say is useless.

Have noticed there's small vibration that comes through the steering wheel on full lock which feels like the joints rotating.

Reminds me of the old days and the question: How do you improve the turning circle of a Ford Escort*? (Only real Volvo anoraks will know the answer to this question)

*Pretty sure that's the car.

Suggest, that due to the lock its the tyres scrubbing a bit on full lock. Used to get that in my old XC60 but dont notice it in my new one. It could be due to the surface you are on.
