Default Notchy Steering

So, i am the owner of a new Peugeot 308 SW from 2019 with the Allure+ spec.

So far very happy altho the car seems to have developed an issue with the steering. Its difficult to explain but ill give it a shot.

The steering is light and as i would expect in towns at low speeds.

However sometimes when i get above 100km/h the steering becomes slightly heavier and has notches when i turn the wheel - Tiny bit of play in the center, then a distinct bit of resistance that feels like there's a slight notch to push over. Present on both left and right turns.

the few times where i turn the wheel more than slightly on the highway, the notches continue around the wheel but with less resistance than the first notch.

I had a talk with the dealer and they asked for me to come for a drive, drove there and there was nothing all the way there and the tech felt nothing while testing the car.

My question is - what do i tell the dealer? i have actual concerns about what would happen if i had to make an emergency maneuver and the wheel fightning me, especially when it becomes time to drive around with a newborn baby.

These "notches", if I understood what you mean, ocasionaly I'm experiencing, too. But, nothing to worry about, I believe.
It should be a bit heavy at higher speeds.

Are you sure this is not the "lane assist" acting? Try indicating before turning the wheel, see if this "notchyness" dissapears.

Ive been driving without the lane assistance for a while to try and figur out of that is causing it. Sadly it happens either way.

I've noticed this a bit on mine as well, anyone know if the steering on one of these is electro-mechanical?

From what people have told me its just a characteristic of this type of system

Yes, that's what I think, too.

It's electric, but I've never noticed this problem on mine.
Well actually I have, when driving on the M25 between J11 and 10, the third world surface makes the steering twitch all over the place.

The steering has never been as smooth as that of my C5. There's a slight notchiness turning the steering wheel slightly which has to be pushed past before you can go further. It's not much but it's there.

No, never noticed that at all. Even when looking for the problem.

Ive managed to remove the problem after it starts by turning off the highway, shutting off the car and back on. This honestly seems odd if its "how its supposed to be"
