    Steering wheel lock question

    Hello all ! I am new to a forum atmosphere, so please forgive me for being a newbie!!! I just bought a new Kia Soul Exclaim 2011 model on 8/6/11....I freaking love it. What I am curious about it the steering wheel lock. I see that once I turn off the Soul I have to turn the wheel to a sharp right before the lock kicks in. Is this normal? I am use to a vehicle that the steering wheel locks as soon as you turn off the car. Please give me some input or am I just being a goober? Thanks in advance and hello from Central Florida!

    Yes, that's normal and is similar to every single car I've ever owned.

    Thank you

    I just found it odd, because like I said all my other vehicles would lock as soon as I turned the key off.

    i would suggest that you dont force the wheel so it locks but just leave it where it is. the lock is there to operate if someone drives off in the car and turns the wheel. The UK souls have electric steering and when you turn and lock into this, it will jam solid and the only way of getting it to unlock is by rolling the car slightly to remove the tension in the steering mechanism.
