Question Help - Steering feels underpowered for my Swift

Guys,

I feel that Swift's power steering is not as light as Santro or even my
ancient Esteem (non EPS)....

I used to literally use my index finger to steer my 8 year old Esteem at speeds less than 10 KM/HR ???

It's not like that it is powerless, but still feel that it is not as powerful at
low speeds than Santro or Honda vtec....

This was reported to Maruti guys and insist that it is fine..and I can't convince them...

Help me !

(I checked air pressure on front wheels and all is ok.)

Have you compared with any other swift? If your vehicle has any problem then this might be the easiest way of convincing the service guys.

Also it would help if you could let us know if you have upsized tyres or stock?
