Complaint - Steering

I HAVE NOTICED THE FOLLOWING STEERING RELATED ISSUES FROM DAY ONE OF MY PURCHASE. THIS IS NOT RELATED TO ELECTRONIC STEERING THAT IS PRESENT IN NEW CARS AS SOME DEALERS WILL CLAIM. I HAVE DRIVEN SEVERAL OTHER 2013 MAKES-FORDS, NISSAN AND TOYOTA, ALL WITH ELECTRONIC STEERING THAT DO NOT DISPLAY THESE PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER. THE VEHICLE DOES NOT DRIVE STRAIGHT WITHOUT CORRECTION BY THE DRIVER. THE CAR WANDERS ALL OVER THE ROAD. STEERING DOES NOT SELF-CENTER/RETURN TO CENTER. MOST VEHICLES HAVE A CENTER SPOT ON THEIR STEERING GEAR THAT ALLOWS THE VEHICLE TO COMFORTABLY STEER IN A STRAIGHT LINE, ESPECIALLY WHEN RETURNING FROM A LANE-CHANGE OR A TURN. PULLS TO THE LEFT AND/OR RIGHT. THE VEHICLE HAS A PRONOUNCED PULL TO THE LEFT AND /OR RIGHT WHILE DRIVING, REQUIRING CONSTANT DRIVER CORRECTION. DOES NOT DRIVE STRAIGHT. AS AN OVERALL, THE VEHICLE REQUIRES CONSTANT CORRECTION BY THE DRIVER TO KEEP THE VEHICLE GOING IN A STRAIGHT LINE. IT'S VERY DANGEROUS AND STRESSFUL TO DRIVE THE 2013 SONATA. I URGE THE USDOT ET AL TO HOLD HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS FAULTY MANUFACTURING AND IMPLEMENT A RECALL THAT WILL FORCE HYUNDAI TO CORRECT THE ISSUE. THIS ACTION IS IMPERATIVE FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL HYUNDAI SONATA OWNERS.
