Hey Shan,

Non circular (ie oval/figure8/butterfly) steering wheels are pretty common, but as far as an offcenter axis of rotation; i have never heard of it in a production car, and i dont think it is the case in the noble...

The wheel on the Noble looks to be vertically oval where as on most cars it is horizontally oval, right? (Hope you understand what i am saying )

Could be air trapped inside. Ask your authorised service center to vent it.
