Complaint - Steering

I HAVE HAD MY 2013 SONATA LIMITED FOR TWO WEEKS. THIS IS MY THIRD HYUNDAI VEHICLE AFTER OWNING A 2011 SONATA LIMITED AND 2007 SANTA FE. THE STEERING IN THE VEHICLE WEAVES FROM LEFT TO RIGHT (DOES NOT TRACK STRAIGHT) AND CONTROL OF THE CAR IS JEOPARDIZED BY THE SMALLEST ROAD CONTOURS OR GUSTS OF WIND REQUIRING CONSTANT CORRECTION. AS A RESULT OF THE CONSTANT DRIVING ADJUSTMENTS, I-++M EXPERIENCING FATIGUE AND SHOULDER/NECK SORENESS. EQUALLY ALARMING IS THE LACK OF CONTROL IS EXTREMELY NOTICEABLE ON HIGHWAYS AT INCREASED SPEEDS. I FIRST NOTICED THIS WEAVING AS SOON AS I PICKED UP THE CAR FROM THE DEALERSHIP. I DID NOT DRIVE THE EXACT CAR PREVIOUSLY BECAUSE THE DEALER SECURED IT FROM ANOTHER DEALERSHIP. I TOOK POSSESSION OF THE CAR ON JULY 18, 2013. FOLLOWING MY FIRST EXTENDED HIGHWAY DRIVING EXPERIENCE IN THE NEW SONATA, I MENTIONED THIS TO THE DEALERSHIP AND HAD THE CAR IMMEDIATELY SERVICED ON JULY 31ST (LESS THAN TWO WEEKS OF HAVING THE CAR). ACCORDING TO THE SERVICE TEAM, NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH THE CAR. HOWEVER, THE FOLLOWING NIGHT WHILE DRIVING TO AND FROM A DINNER THE CAR WAS CONSTANTLY WEAVING IN MY LANE. HAVING PREVIOUSLY OWNED TWO HYUNDAI VEHICLES, I KNOW THIS WEAVING AND LACK OF CONTROL WAS NOT AN ISSUE IN MY OTHER HYUNDAI CARS.
