Do you have access to VCDS to see what fault codes are stored? Anything that interfered with your steering, even for a short time, is worth investigating. The rack is electric on a MkV.



FWIW, these cars are quite fussy/sensitive on batteries. Odd behaviour isn't unheard of when the battery isn't in good condition.
