Complaint - Steering

WHEN DRIVING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS, CAR DRIFTS EITHER LEFT OR RIGHT. THE CAR NEVER STAYS ON COURSE. WHEN IT DRIFTS LEFT AND YOU TRY TO CORRECT IT, IT GOES RIGHT, WHICH REQUIRES CORRECTING AGAIN. IT IS A CONSTANT BATTLE ON THE ROAD, AND AT LEAST 4 DIFFERENT TIMES, WE HAVE ALMOST BEEN IN A ACCIDENT WITH ANOTHER CAR DO TO THIS. THE CAR EITHER GOES LEFT OR RIGHT, NEVER GOES STRAIGHT. I TRY MY BEST TO HOLD IT STRAIGHT BY HOLDING THE STEERING WHEEL FIRM TO TEST IT, BUT IT DOES NOT MATTER. THIS ISSUE SERIOUSLY SCARES US. WE ACTUALLY JUST KEEP THE VEHICLE PARKED MOST OF THE TIME, AND DRIVE OUR OLDER VEHICLE. OUR HYUNDAI ON HAS ABOUT 7K ON THE ODOMETER. WHEN I HOLD THE STEERING WHEEL STRAIGHT, I CAN COUNT TO 6 SECONDS BEFORE THE CAR IS ALMOST COMPLETELY IN ANOTHER LANE. ONE TIME, I COUNTED TO 7 AND THE CAR WAS COMPLETELY OFF THE ROAD ON THE EMERGENCY LANE. HYUNDAI NEEDS TO FIX THIS. THIS IS SERIOUSLY A VERY BAD ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. WHEN WE TOOK IT TO THE DEALER, THEY SAID ITS BECAUSE IT HAS ELECTRIC STEERING AND TOLD US WE SHOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT THE CAR IF WE DIDN'T LIKE HOW IT DRIVES AND THEN SENT US ON OUR WAY. I JUST HOPE MORE PEOPLE WITH THIS PROBLEM COME FORWARD AND VOICE THEIR ISSUE SO HYUNDAI WILL ACTUALLY ADDRESS IT. ITS FUNNY HOW HYUNDAI SAYS THAT IT IS WHAT IT IS, WHEN THIS IS THE SAME THING HYUNDAI HAD A MAJOR RECALL ON PREVIOUS MODEL YEAR SONATAS W/ 18" WHEELS, WHICH OURS HAS.
