Actually Jason's opinion of the steering was "dead the fuck dead", but I avoid holding any single review as sacrosanct unless the majority of opinions agree. I provided 12 examples which didn't necessarily share the same conclusions.Good job purposely choosing mostly the early reviews and first drives that are full sunshine and rainbows instead of the real reviews.
Jason Cammisa openly said the Z's steering feels dead af. Also, linear and predictable steering doesn't equal great steering feedback.
I didn't cherry pick those citations either, search results were limited to written reviews and I went straight down the list without bias. Cammisa's content on the Z is mostly published on YouTube, and fwiw those videos have stellar production quality.
