I can feel the vibrations in modern cars, but it's like wearing a thick layer of cushioning on your hands... it isn't anything like non assisted steering. The 'weight' tends to be wrong as well, generally too light around the centre. It doesn't have to be that way.
Is it simply that manufacturers have implemented it badly, or that electronic v hydraulic can never have the same feel?
