Default Is the speed-proportional steering wheel supposed to tighten up at high speed?

Greetings:

Am I misleading? I feel the 2005 Legacy 2.5GT speed-proportional power steering is too light at high speed or when cornering and too tight when performing a parallel park (compare to an 1986 Honda Accord). Does it suppose to be the other way around?

they started doing that technology on the XT (Subaru invented it). I don't know if it has carried over, but i believe it is fairly true on my outback.

If you're having problems with power steering, maybe check out the pump, or the pulley powering that pump? It sounds kinda odd to me (not something that's supposed to happen).

Thank you all, for your feedback. I will mention it to a service advisor at the 3000 miles service.
