Complaint - Steering

(TODAY'S DATE: 13JULY2013)..MY 2013 SONATA LE STEERING TENDS TO WANDER ON THE ROAD. IT HAS SINCE I PURCHASED IT IN AUGUST 2012. THE DEALER SAYS NOTHING IS WRONG; THEY CAN'T REALLY NOTICE IT. YET I ALMOST CONSTANTLY NEED TO MAKE STEERING ADJUSTMENTS FOR SMALL UNCOMMANDED DIRECTIONAL CHANGES PARTICULARLY AT SPEEDS BETWEEN 35 AND 70 MPH (IT DRIVES BETTER AT 80 MPH). I SEEMS WORSE ON VARIOUS ROAD SURFACES (SMOOTH ASPHALT VS ROUGH/OIL AGGREGATE SURFACE VS CEMENT ETC.). I JUST RECENTLY BECAME AWARE THAT THIS HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR MANY 2013 SONATA OWNERS. IT ADDS TO DRIVER FATIGUE (TIRING) AND MAKES DRIVING MUCH LESS ENJOYABLE, AND EVEN SCARY, PARTICULARLY IN HEAVY TRAFFIC AT FREEWAY SPEEDS. IF YOU BECOME DISTRACTED FOR EVEN JUST A MOMENT, YOU COULD MOVE INTO ANOTHER LANE (OR CAR). IN OTHER WORDS, YOU'RE CONSTANTLY COMPENSATING, IT'S LIKE YOUR DRIVING A MOTOR BOAT WHERE YOU'RE CONSTANTLY ADJUSTING THE STEERING WHEEL. ALSO, THE CAR HAS THE WORST TIRE NOISE OF ANY CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED. THE DEALER SAYS IT'S NORMAL FOR THIS CAR.
