I like racing games on the PS3 but was frustated with the hand controller. So decided to buy a wheel - wanted a 25 but EB games had a 27 on sale so bought thet.
Awful. As soon as I turn hard in a corner or crash the alignment moves left. The wheel turns to 180 degrees left and it won't go back. There is no option in the games to reset or a button on the wheel to do this. Have to restart the game - goes back to normal - I have read some posts here that say this is a common problem. I am amazed that there is no quality testing at logitech. They could just plug this into a system when it's built, race round a circuit and see it doesn't work.
So what do I do now? Numerous posts say the best solution is to dismanlte the $400 wheel and apply super glue to an optical sensor. They also say you can send it back to logitech (at own expense) wait 3 weeks and get a new one with the same problem.
Any suggestions logitech Austalia? Funny thing is, if I was to pay $400 on any device and had a problem like this I would just take it back and get a refund.

No response from logitech?
Plz provide details as to how this can be fixed. How much glue is needed? Can you provide a diagram?
I have asked EB games to take it back. They said you have to speak to Logitech.
How can I speak to logitech when they don't answer? Just continue ranting here I guess.
The wheel (all $400.00 of it) is useless. First bump, slight grass verge and you are steering upside down. No way to get it back without yanking the USB cable and resetting again. Total crap. But it costs $400.
What a bargain.
A total complete rip off. Don't buy a logitech wheel in Australia. You think you are buying the best, fork out $400 bucks, then find out it's a piece of crap that doesn't work and you just gotta live with it.
Thanks Logitech. Never again.
