Complaint - Steering

THE DAY AFTER I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE I DROVE IT ON THE FREEWAY AT 65 MPH FOR A DISTANCE OF 40 MILES. I NOTICED THAT IN ORDER TO KEEP THE VEHICLE WITHIN THE FREEWAY LANES I WAS CONSTANTLY ADJUSTING THE STEERING. IF I DID NOT ADJUST THE STEERING CONSTANTLY I WOULD DRIFT INTO ANOTHER LANE. AFTER ABOUT 40 MINUTES OF DRIVING I WAS FRUSTRATED AND EXHAUSTED FROM THE EFFORTS TO KEEP THE VEHICLE IN THE SAME LANE. I TOOK IT INTO THE DEALER AND THE SERVICE MANAGER ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THERE WAS DEFINITELY A PROBLEM WITH THE STEERING BUT THERE WAS NOTHING THAT HE COULD DO TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM. HE INDICATED THAT THIS WAS AN ELECTRIC STEERING SYSTEM AND THAT THIS WAS NORMAL FOR THIS CAR. I CALLED THE CORPORATE OFFICES OF THE HYUNDAI CORPORATION AND SPOKE WITH ONE OF THEIR CONSULTANTS AND THEY ALSO CONFIRMED THAT THIS WAS NORMAL FOR THIS VEHICLE AND THAT THEY HAD NO PLANS TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM.
