I have the same. Seems to be more noticeable with cold temperatures and maybe older harder tires (Dallas summers will harden them). I think it's normal. Ackermann principle seems a good explanation.
Same here. I have to make a very sharp and very slow blind left turn in the garage at my office and it feels like the car is skipping sideways when I am doing it. As soon as I come off the steering lock, it stops. Does not appear to cause any other problems.I have the same.

Can you describe the sensation?I get that too when my turning radius is tight, typically a full uturn. It feels like extra resistance - I think it's due to tire size steering radius ..
Wow look at you go posting a You Tube Video that's scaryThis kid explains it well.
it feels like your running over somthing, a tugging feel. Another way to descirbe it is a sort of skipping effect, grip, tug, grip -- it's not pleasent and feels like it was not properly designed and it's defintly not every smooth - never felt it before in a car. I'm told it is the lenght of the car, tire size and speed one is traveling.Can you describe the sensation?
Well, kind of. Mostly it's just the size (width) of the tires themselves, really.Is this not an effect of rear wheel drive? The front tires must push the front of the car side ways but the rear tires are pushing the car in a straight forward line. So the front tires are just skidding on the surface. It is worse on slippery surfaces such as garages.
On a front wheel drive car the front wheels actually pull the front of the car sideways.
