BOUGHT THIS CAR NEW AS A CLOSEOUT ON MAY 30TH 2014. I WAS ON INTERSTATE 57 GOING SOUTH ABOUT 60 MILES OUT OF PADUCAH KY DRIVING THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL ON. WITH NO WARNING THE CAR WENT TO THE LEFT ACROSS 3 LANES AND THEN BACK TO THE RIGHT 3 LANES AND AGAIN TO THE LEFT 3 LANES BEFORE I COULD REGAIN CONTROL. THE SEMI BEHIND ME JUST ABOUT JACK KNIFED TRYING TO AVOID HITTING ME. IT WAS ONLY BECAUSE THE TRAFFIC WAS VERY LIGHT AND THE SEMI AND I WERE THE ONLY ONES ON THE ROAD IN THAT AREA AT THE TIME THIS HAPPENED, OR THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A MAJOR ACCIDENT. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER IN PADUCAH THEY SAID IT WAS MY BRAKES, THEY CUT THE ROUTERS. I COULD NOT DRIVE THE CAR EVEN AFTER THE REPAIR OVER 55 MPH AS IT WOULD WANDER TO THE LEFT AND TO THE RIGHT. WHEN I RETURNED TO MY HOME STATE I TOOK THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALER AND TOLD THEM TO RETURN IT TO HYUNDAI. I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALER THAT THEY NEVER HEARD OF THIS EVER HAPPENING TO ANYONE ELSE. I HAVE SEEN REPORTS OF OTHERS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM SO THIS IS A COVER UP BY HYUNDAI. THE STEERING ON THE HYUNDAI IS BAD! THERE NEEDS TO BE A MAJOR RECALL ON THIS ELECTRONIC STEERING. THE COMPLAINTS ARE FROM SONATA OWNERS ALSO.
