ariens auto turn

I was quite interested in the new ariens deluxe 24' or the platinum. When reading on the ariens forum there seem too be a design flaw in "auto turn". I don't have a level smooth driveway which wouldn't help matters any. From what I read in one thread was that these machines go off course when not turning because the auto turn kicks in too easily? The owners had to keep wrestling with it to make it go straight. Is this the norm for the new ariens? Does anybody know how long auto turn has been installed on these machines?

If you search this forum, there are many threads related to the Ariens Auto Turn feature. Most like it, some have had problems. It's been discussed at length in the past here.

Al, your concern is legitimate. The uneven surfaces do seem to have the AutoTurn heading off in one direction or the other.

I think AutoTurn has been our there for a while on the "pro" machines and Ariens has been adding it to more of the product time in recent years.
