Well I haven't noticed that. I usually turn it to MAR wait for a second and then turn it on. Anyway I started the car yday and it went smooth. However after I parked the car and I wanted to try the steering lock. I turned the steering till it got locked. Now I have an issue starting the car !! :hit . Referred the user manual and it advises to 'rock the steering wheel while turning the key to MAR' to disengage the steering lock. Will try that out today. Trying out something without complete knowledge is a dangerous thing !!
