Heavy steering

Hi guys, on a 1 - 10 scale, how heavy should my steering be on a 3 late v6 tai touareg.

My kia sorento had the lightest steering ever on a truck that was 2 tonnes, this vw being a heavier truck and bigger engine from the kia 2.5 rid, it just seems heavy at lower speeds and on the spot. Fine whilst cruising.

I read a report on here recently but can't find it, possibly being a power steering pump replacement maybe.

Any help. Also, drivers seat keeps letting itself down from a raised position after pumping up, any suggestions as to a fix or replacement part

I answered the seat question a couple of days ago: you buy a plastic part from the dealer to put under the seat up/down lever.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
